8th OECD Forum on Green Finance and Investment

Opening Plenary: Outlook on green finance and the low-carbon transition on the eve of COP26

Oct 11, 2021 | 10:25 AM - 11:55 AM


COP26 comes at a critical crossroads, and is hoped to significantly raise ambition and accelerate action in the “decade for delivery”. Only ten years remain to cut emissions by nearly 50 percent to have a good chance to limit warming to 1.5 degrees. As net-zero commitments and pledges increase, will they be enough to achieve the unprecedented levels of global emission reductions needed this decade? This Opening Plenary and the Forum as a whole will seek perspectives from key actors in the public and private sector on prospects and ambitions for green finance and investment as well as ecological transition in a COVID and post-COVID world. This session will also aim to discuss how the low-emission transition can be achieved in a way that addresses adaptation needs, other environmental objectives, and wider well-being needs.
