Standard Chartered, with the participation of BeyondNetZero, invites you to join the Economist Impact at COP27 in Sharm EI-Sheikh, Egypt for an in-person panel discussion on “Financing climate action for a green and equitable future”.
With global average temperatures rising rapidly along with more severe weather patterns, it is now imperative for countries to invest in infrastructure that focuses on climate adaptation. Investments are needed in new technology, business models and practices that effectively tackle climate mitigation and adaptation while also delivering economic development for countries. At the same time, financing has become more challenging in the face of intensifying geopolitical tensions, rising cost of living and persistent inequality. With countries struggling with so many near-term risks and challenges, where does climate action factor in?
Sponsored by Standard Chartered, this event seeks to bring together business leaders, industry experts and thought leaders to explore the latest trends and challenges around the climate finance landscape and drive concrete actions on building a more sustainable and inclusive future.
