Third annual Climate Finance Day
On December 11, 2017, the 3rd annual Climate Finance Day will take place in Paris. The aim is to accelerate the international mobilisation for financing the fight against climate change. In order to showcase solutions developed by the financial sector and accelerate commitments against climate change, the French Ministry for the Economy and Finance & Paris EUROPLACE, with its initiative Finance for Tomorrow, are organizing this new edition of Climate Finance Day.
Climate Finance Day 2017 will bring together representatives of the financial industry, regulation and supervision authorities, and central banks. It will showcase the most innovative initiatives aimed at accelerating the financing of the energy transition and adaptation to global warming. It will provide information on transparency and address risk management, financing solutions for the real economy and public-private partnerships. The most promising initiatives announced on Climate Finance Day will be highlighted during the "One Planet Summit" held the following day in Paris.
