How can financial services move faster to slow climate change? How can financial services move faster to slow climate change?

In this webcast, EY professionals across the globe explore the outcomes of COP26 and how it can be translated into business action and impact. 

COP26 is a pivotal moment in the fight against climate change. No single country, organization or industry can solve the climate crisis alone, and collaboration will be vital. And financial service organizations have a key role to play in the global response to climate change.

There won’t be a sustainable future without sustainable finance. It will require trillion-dollar growth in the market for sustainable lending, investment and insurance. Meeting this demand is not just a moral responsibility for the finance industry, but also a historic business opportunity.

The webcast will look at commitments made at COP26 and where the focus needs to be now to protect and create new sources of value - from credible decarbonization plans and financing the transition for different types of industries, to mobilizing capital and protecting biodiversity.

Among the topics we’ll cover are:

  • How can the outcomes of COP accelerate sustainable finance?
  • The role of financial services on the path to net-zero post-COP26, from commitment to practical steps
  • The importance of backing up plans and progress with credible disclosures
