Drawing on the theme of Mainstreaming Green Finance, the 2nd Green Finance Summit will bring together high-level speakers to present keynotes on policy and regulatory developments that must be incorporated into the financial system and embedded through corporate governance.

On a practical level, how can we move forward and how are companies committing to the TFCD recommendations? Our first panel will open up the debate on governance, strategy, risk, metrics and targets. In the transition to a low-carbon economy what are the next steps needed to bring climate-related disclosures into the mainstream?

Green infrastructure financing is key to our transition to a sustainable and climate resilient economy. Our second panel will examine the investment case for green energy and infrastructure, barriers to capital flows and how global governments and investors can facilitate green infrastructure development and financing.

The close of the event will focus on leadership in global green finance. How are nations, financial centres and other institutions demonstrating commitment and stepping up actions in green finance? How can we accelerate the development of the green finance market at an international level and maximise the impact of the financial sector in achieving green objectives?

Keynote speakers include: 

  • John Glen MP, Economic Secretary to the Treasury;
  • Rt Hon. Claire Perry MP, Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth;
  • Sean Kidney, CEO, Climate Bonds Initiative;
  • Lord Stern, Chair, LSE Grantham Research Institute
