7th Forum on Green Finance and Investment 2020

Description

To help direct capital to where it is needed, policymakers are developing sustainable finance taxonomies and definitions at regional (EU) and national level. Increasing numbers of asset managers and institutional investors are investing in sustainable infrastructure. But despite increasing ambition, new approaches are needed to reallocate capital and scale-up investment. At sub-national level, given that regions and cities are responsible for around 65% of climate and environment-related public investment in the OECD, decisions of regional authorities and mayors will be critical to ensuring a green, sustainable recovery.
