Sustainable Finance Action Platformin lanseeraustilaisuus



Tule kuuntelemaan, mistä Sustainable Finance Action Platformissa on kyse.

The world has a special opportunity to reset the global climate change agenda in the lead up to the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), to be held in November 2021 in Glasgow, UK. For this to happen, the world must be clear on its strategic objectives, the shifts that are needed, and within that, the role of finance. The reset must be seen in the COVID context of rescue, recovery and transformation, with a strong emphasis on the overarching strategic objective/goal of sustainable, inclusive and resilient growth. The UK–Norway Sustainable Finance Action Platform is a newly formed collaborative initiative between the British Embassy in Oslo, and the local Networks of the United Nations Global Compact in the UK and Norway, for companies and institutions in the financial sector to work together to solve sustainability issues and work towards the COP26. The Platform is based on the five Action Tracks in the COP26 finance campaign objectives.
