    Aligning Finance with the Transition to Net Zero

    Aligning Finance with the Transition to Net Zero

    In this latest installment of the Climate Risk Podcast, we will be exploring two key concepts in the transition to net zero: greening finance and financing green.
    One interesting finding from GARP’s 2020 Climate Risk Survey was that over the next five years financial firms expect climate-related opportunities to have a bigger impact on their strategies than climate-related risks, underlining the fact that navigating the impacts of climate change also means being alive to the opportunities being created.
    That’s why in today’s episode we are speaking with the head of an organisation that is actively working to bring together coalitions of global experts to identify and unlock barriers to impactful green investment.
    Dr Rhian-Mari Thomas OBE, CEO of the Green Finance Institute, works at the intersection of policy making and finance and will be exploring some of the current leading efforts to align financial flows with the need to transition to a net-zero economy.
    Today’s episode covers:
    The distinction between greening finance and financing green How we can navigate barriers to green finance Embedding climate and sustainability in professional education A look ahead to COP26 If you have any questions, thoughts or feedback regarding this podcast series, we would love to hear from you. Please email us at: climateriskpodcast@garp.com
    *Please note that between the time of recording and the release of this episode, two potential green finance initiatives discussed towards the end of the interview have now been formally announced. The first is that on the 9th November 2020, the UK Government announced that the first UK sovereign green bonds will be issued during 2021. The second was the Government’s announcement that a UK Infrastructure Bank will be established to aid the UK’s response to the COVID 19 pandemic and transition to a net-zero economy by 2050.
