Event Details

Given the global challenges we are collectively facing as a result of climate change, it is important to understand the role that green finance can play to ensure we can sustainably transition to a net-zero economy by 2050 at the latest and limit global warming to 1.5C.

Alongside multilateral work on carbon taxes and other measures, financial institutions can play a key role to help incentivize both their retail and corporate customers to make more environmentally sustainable choices, while offsetting the ‘green premium’ through the provision of more affordable capital provided by green finance. Attend this exclusive event to discover how Italian banks can leverage the opportunity with green and sustainable finance to positively impact the environment and our society.
