The FT’s Climate Capital Summit, hosted in partnership with the UNFCCC High-Level Climate Action Champions for COP25 and COP26, Nigel Topping and Gonzalo Muñoz, comes at a pivotal time. As nations set a path for economic recovery, our agenda will dive deep into the green investment criteria required, understand how climate finance will be reported and monitored, cut through the jargon and underpin what a successful race to net-zero means for all sectors and nations.
