About this talk

Energy efficiency is key to sustainable development, offering significant potential in fighting climate change, alleviating energy poverty and mitigating air pollution. Despite its importance, investments in various sectors, such as real estate, transportation and among small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) remain hindered by various barriers, including those related to risk. Our webinar delves into how banks and insurers can play a critical role in bridging the investment gap and promoting energy efficiency, not only through conventional means but also through innovative instruments and approaches. Speakers: Daniel de Búrca, Head of Policy and Regulatory Affairs, International Credit Insurance & Surety Association (ICISA) Marc du Plessis, Executive Head - LookSee Platform, Standard Bank Moira Gill, Associate Vice President, Environment, Government and Industry Relations, TD Insurance Preksha Tripathi, Client Manager and Relationship Manager, Government Business, Munich Re

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.
