Green Finance Summit 2017, 31 May – 1 June, London

The inaugural Green Finance Summit is a two-day symposium showcasing the latest in green financial policy, market developments and thought leadership.

Speakers will include world-leading experts in green finance, from business and technology representatives to investors, financiers and high-level government figures. The focus for the Summit will be commercial opportunity and achieving the “scaling-up” of green finance globally, as targeted by G20 leaders last September.

Discussion on Day 1 will specifically address project finance and policy incentives. A new stream will run in parallel focusing on Financing Transition in Latin American. Day 2 will explore investor demand for green products, and the role of corporates as both potential green issuers and investors. All discussions will make clear the primacy of private-sector and investor leadership, mixing set piece podium speeches with deep-dives into key policy and market areas.

Join us at this key event as it brings together key business and political leaders from across the globe for high level discussions on the future of green finance.

Hosted by the City of London Corporation and Principles for Responsible Investment.

Latin American stream co-hosted with Canning House, Eversheds Sutherland, and CAF.
