8th Annual Conference on Investment Treaties - Investment Treaties, the Paris Agreement and Net Zero: Towards Alignment?

Towards Paris Agreement and Net Zero alignment commitments?

Apr 11, 2023 | 11:40 AM CEST - 1:00 PM CEST



This session identified obstacles to Paris and Net zero commitments for investment treaty policies and how they could be addressed. It drew on insights and experiences from other actors and policy areas with influence on finance flows. The nature of government action at issue in investment treaty policies was considered from the perspective of climate commitments. Building on work to date at the OECD on art. 2.1(c) of the Paris Agreement and investment treaties, as well as increasing attention to art. 2.1(c) elsewhere, the discussion considered the finance flows associated with investment treaties, their relation to climate policies and developments in finance flow alignment. The discussion also drew on the 2022-2023 survey of climate policies for investment treaties.
