COP26 event: Financing a resilient net zero future

By Climate Champions | October 27, 2021

The COP26 Finance Day Action Zone event will highlight how actors across the global financial system are taking near-term action towards net zero by 2050 consistent with 1.5C and are committed to implement and accelerate the transition.  

The sessions will feature tangible, near-term actions from the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) chaired by Mark Carney in collaboration with the High-level Champions and Race to Zero as well as deep dives into how we transition the finance sector and how we finance the transition. The sessions will also discuss how the finance sector can go further faster to drive implementation, covering:

  • Credible near-term targets
  • Financing sector transition
  • Creating a step change in private capital for emerging markets and developing countries
  • Financing nature and curbing deforestation and
  • Financing the Race to Resilience

This Marrakech Partnership Global Climate Action will be accessible virtually through the UNFCCC website.
