Webinar: From TCFD to SDG Finance – Next Steps in Sustainable Finance

14 November 2018

UNEP FI has pioneered work on Positive Impact finance, and TCFD implementation for investors, banks and insurers. Join this webinar to hear from the leaders at UNEP FI about next steps in financing the Sustainable Development Goals, TCFD implementation, and how the bigger picture in sustainable finance is evolving.

A stocktake of SDG finance

Where are we at with SDG financing? Latest UN reports (HLPF, September 2018) suggest we may not be on track overall with SDGs. UNEP FI and a range of partners believe that results-driven – i.e. impact focused – analysis needs to be consolidated and mainstreamed to meaningfully connect the private and finance sector to the SDG agenda. The Principles for Positive Impact provide a meta-framework with a holistic definition of impact to complement and promote convergence among the growing body of impact-oriented methodologies and standards.

Next steps in implementing the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures

How can financial institutions better understand, assess, and prepare for climate change, across meteorological, technological, and regulatory spheres? How can they do so in a forward-looking, scenario-based manner, that allows them to respond to the Financial Stability Board’s TCFD? How are they coming together to jointly develop answers? UNEP FI has led several pilot-projects on implementing the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, and here we share the results and outcomes.

This webinar, held on the BrightTALK platform, is presented by Careen Abb, Positive Impact Lead, UNEP FI and Remco Fischer, Climate Lead, UNEP FI. It will be live online on November 14 12:00 pm (CET) and will last for 60 minutes. Register for free here.
