Banking for net zero: Accelerating the deployment of transition finance

11 Nov 2022
Climate Action Stage
Week 1
How do we invest to decarbonise parts of the economy that aren't yet green? Though green finance is well understood, transition finance is not. It is a way of classifying and structuring financing towards activities on the path to net zero, even if these have higher emissions today. Join the session to hear speakers present and discuss a new practical framework for financial institutions to assess transition finance investments, co-developed by academics, leading DFIs and African commercial financial institutions in the run up to COP27. Chair: British International Investment
Lina Osman, Head Sustainable Finance - West Standard Chartered
Nicola Mustetea, Director, Climate Change - BII
Annika Brouwer, Sustainability Specialist - NinetyOne
Arvana Singh, Head, Sustainable Finance Solutions - Nedbank
Alex Michie, Head of Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero - COP26 Private Finace, HM Treasury
Amal-Lee Amin, Managing Director and Head of Climate Change - British International Investment
