Financing a Resilient Future: Target Setting for Climate and Nature

Presented by

UNEP FI | Carbon Trust

About this talk

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.

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.
