Join our Vice President and Special Advisor to Chairman, Mr. Ben McQuhae on the webinar of Global perspectives on how financial regulations can guide the transition to a low-carbon economy. The online webinar is held on 25 June 2020 15:30-16:45 HKT. Institute for Climate Economics (I4CE) and the United Nations Environment Programme(UNEP) convened Financial Centres for Sustainability (FC4S) network to co-host this webinar to discuss the findings of the I4CE report “What Role for financial regulation to help the low-carbon transition?” along with sustainable finance experts from Hong Kong, Paris and Frankfurt.
The report explores the role that financial regulation should play to contribute to an effective alignment of the private financial sector with the Paris Agreement’s objectives. Key report questions centred on whether financial regulation could and should also pursue macro-policy objectives such as redirecting financial flows towards “green” activities at the expense of “brown” activities?
