Green Finance Summit 2017

London, 2017-05-31

CPI Associate Director Angela Falconer will be speaking at the Green Finance Summit 2017 in London during the following panel discussion on June 1st from 10:55 – 11:45.

Accelerating green finance 
$65 trillion of green investment will be required by 2035 to maintain a sub two-degree scenario, according to the International Energy Agency. Clearly, such investment is beyond the scope of government spending or public subsidy. But rising demand for low-carbon, climate-aligned assets is fueling a wave of industry innovation, and private sector leadership is now driving efforts to scale-up green finance. This panel will showcase the latest in green financial innovation, and explore next steps for the industry.

Panelists:

  • Suzanne Buchta – MD, Green Bonds, Bank of America Merrill Lynch
  • Dr Angela Falconer – Associate Director, Climate Policy Initiative
  • Laure Legaud – Structure and Quantitative, Credit Portfolio Management, Crédit Agricole CIB
  • Cindy Rose – Head of SRI Research, Aberdeen Asset Management

Keynote and Moderator:

  • Sean Kidney – CEO, Climate Bonds Initiative
