About This Event

No climate conference would be complete without a session on the role of finance in decarbonizing heavy industry, which is responsible for 30% of global emissions. Access to capital remains one of the biggest barriers to progress for these sectors. This discussion will move beyond the usual calls for increased capital and government action and instead focus on how critical actors in this space are making decisions: How does a financial institution align its climate goals with business in these sectors? What projects are reaching financial close? What dynamics are shaping a world-leading government funding program critical to driving large-scale change? How are corporates addressing decarbonization pathways through target setting, disclosures, and financing of clean technologies? This event is sold out.
