Joint webinar with FC4S on "Financial Centers on the Road to COP26"
The 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) offers a space for dialogue where cities, governments, civil society, and companies propose a transformation agenda to make the Paris Agreement operational and concretely demonstrate their collective commitment to mitigate emissions and build resilience throughout the planet.
Preparing for a successful COP26 requires the participation of Financial Centres, which are natural nodes to pilot the transition towards a sustainable financial system, due to the clustering of financial activities and finance professional services and institutions, as well as their convening power among public and private market actors.
For this reason, the World Alliance of International Financial Centers (WAIFC) and the UN-convened Financial Centres for Sustainability (FC4S) have created a space that will focus on the Sustainable Finance Agenda within Financial Centers, their advances on aligning their portfolios with the zero-carbon transition, and the Paris Alignment, to precede and enrich the COP26 discussions.
