Tacking action on climate change requires coordinated global action and coordinated global funding. The COP 26 conference in Glasgow took steps towards delivering the $100bn climate finance goal by 2023, with funding being used to tackle fossil fuel use, but funding will be needed for many years into the future to ensure the global transition to green energy.

Private financial institutions and central banks are moving to realign trillions towards global net zero, and this webinar will examine progress towards this milestone:

• What governments are going furthest in providing financial support?
• What is best practice in getting central banks and finance ministry to catalyze moves to net zero?
• What investment incentives need to be put in place by government?
