Bruegel Annual Meetings, Day 3 - In this session on the final day of the Meetings, our panelists will discuss the future of finance and its sustainability.

September 3, 2021, 10:15 am Palais des Académies, Rue Ducale 1, Brussels Public | On the Record Livestreamed Topic: Energy & Climate

The low carbon transition will require a rapid re-orientation of finance, as climate risks are disclosed and green investments become more attractive. The EU has developed an elaborate framework for sustainable finance and other jurisdictions are putting similar frameworks in place. In the meantime, private sector companies and financial institutions have made numerous net-zero commitments and investors are becoming more assertive in their engagements in the exposed sectors.

This panel will take stock of what has been accomplished in EU policy, and assess what role sustainable finance can play in the low-carbon transition. Will shortcomings in other areas, such as carbon pricing and corporate sector disclosure, ultimately frustrate a de-risking in the financial sector? Will EU efforts sufficiently reflect the need to mobilize climate finance in emerging markets? These questions will also be key topics of discussion at the November UN climate summit (COP-26).
