  • Financing a Resilient Future: Target Setting for Climate and Nature Oct 1 2020 1:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    UNEP FI | Carbon Trust
    The Paris Agreement signalled an acceleration in the transition to a low carbon economy. Many institutions are already making ambitious commitments to making this a reality – but they also need ambitious emissions reduction targets that ensure the transformational action they take is aligned with current planetary needs. At the same time, the world hasn’t fully met any of the 20 biodiversity targets set by global governments a decade ago

    This webinar provides insights on next steps in target setting for climate and nature, how organisations are making ambitious commitments and implications for their businesses.

  • Aligning finance for the net zero economy: new ideas from leading thinkers Recorded: Sep 2 2020 80 mins
    Ben Caldecott (Oxford University) | Dennis Pamlin (RISE) | Kirsten Dunlop (Climate-KIC) | Eric Usher (UNEP FI)
    EIT Climate-KIC has partnered with UNEP FI to produce this ‘thought leadership’ series that aims to inspire financial actors worldwide to move from risk to alignment, challenge current assumptions around climate alignment and develop ideas and concepts on how alignment can best be achieved. We hope to encourage stakeholders that a proactive climate response is not only about disclosing risks, but also about investing in green opportunities that can enable the low emissions societies of the future. This series convenes innovators and industry experts to provoke discussion, challenge the status quo and guide the transformation of business and finance towards a sustainable future.
    “1. Achieving Alignment in Finance"
    The first in this series will be presented by Dr Ben Caldecott, who explores what climate alignment means for financial institutions, the barriers faced by financial institutions wishing to align their portfolios, and finally taking a more granular look at what alignment might mean for various dimensions of financial practice across asset classes.
    "2. Transformations Required to Deliver 1.5°C and Global Sustainability"
    The second paper is from Dennis Pamlin, who takes a look at the actions necessary to deliver a 1.5°C society and how the roles of economic and financial stakeholders need to transform in response to the 4th industrial revolution.

  • Just transition: People & communities along for net-zero carbon economy Recorded: Jul 22 2020 74 mins
    UNEP FI, BMO, Grantham Research Institute, ILO
    The transition to a net-zero economy that leaves no one behind places social issues at the heart of the agenda. The transition to a low-carbon economy will not only affect economies and businesses but will have far-reaching impact on communities and workers affected by job losses, stagnant wages, and new work dynamics. The Covid-19 Pandemic underscored the importance of social equity and economic stability and only brought forward the need for building resilience and collective action to deal with systemic risks and inequalities including climate change.

    This webinar looks at the dimensions of a “just transition” framework, the financial sector’s approach to the discussion with stakeholders across different sectors, and how can we build a stronger inclusive and equitable future with decent work that is sustainable and addresses systemic risk and injustice.

    Speakers:
    Rani Pooran, BMO Financial Group, Senior Advisor, Office of Inclusion
    Whitney McWade, BMO Financial Group, Senior Advisory, Sustainability Strategy
    Nick Robins, Grantham Research Institute on Climate change and the Environment, Professor of Practice in Sustainable Finance

  • Rebuilding a sustainable and inclusive recovery Recorded: Jul 8 2020 88 mins
    UNEP FI
    Covid-19 pandemic tragically impacted lives and livelihood. The focus for the sustainable financial community was on mitigating the immediate impact and helping communities face this unprecedented threat and economic disruption. As we shift our attention to the recovery and revitalizing the economy, the effort is focused on ”building back better” and taking the opportunity of the recovery plans in place to ensure a sustainable recovery that applies an environmental and social lens to growth. Building better with opportunities that can support an inclusive and sustainable transition to the new low-carbon economy.

    Learning from the previous Financial Crisis of 2008, governments globally are taking initiative and announcing green and sustainable stimulus or “green recovery” packages. How can the financial industry pivot the recovery towards a climate-resilient future that can aid the transition to a sustainable low-carbon inclusive economy, stimulate decent job creation and direct public expenditure and alignment towards long-term objectives. In this webinar, we will discuss the policy recommendations for North America and that entails for the finance industry. How banks, insurers and investors can align their response to build long-term and sustainable recovery and accelerate their transition.

    Guest Speakers:
    Eric Usher - UNEP Finance Initiative, Head
    Steven M. Rothstein - Ceres Accelerator for Sustainable Capital Markets, Founding Managing Director
    Justin Ram - GSec and Justin Ram Advisory Services, Co-Founder and CEO
    Lavinia Barros, The Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES), Head of Department, Strategic Planning Division

UNEP FI
United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is a partnership between United Nations Environment and the global financial sector created in the wake of the 1992 Earth Summit with a mission to promote sustainable finance. More than 240 financial institutions, including banks, insurers, and investors, work with UN Environment to understand today’s environmental, social and governance challenges, why they matter to finance, and how to actively participate in addressing them.

UNEP FI’s work also includes a strong focus on policy – by facilitating country-level dialogues between finance practitioners, supervisors, regulators and policy-makers, and, at the international level, by promoting financial sector involvement in processes such as the global climate negotiations.
