About this talk

Public policy sets the framework in which investors operate and shapes the decisions made by investors and companies on capital allocation. Ambition on climate policy has grown dramatically in recent years and will have a tangible impact on financial flows critical to transitioning to a climate-resilient, low-carbon economy. The founding partners of the Investor Agenda – AIGCC, CDP, Ceres, IGCC, IIGCC, PRI and UNEP FI – are launching a report looking at this changing policy landscape worldwide and identifying eight key principles of policy action to further accelerate the transition and support effective investor action. The report also looks at how climate policy has evolved in specific regions, particularly where Investor Agenda partners have supported climate policy outreach in Australia, the EU, Japan and the United States. Join the Investor Agenda partners in discussing the key messages from this joint report across two webinars with investors and policy experts from the Asia-Pacific region.

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.
