In order to realise the objectives of the Paris Agreement and the energy transition, the global building stock needs to be made zero emission, efficient and resilient. As the world adds the equivalent of the floor space of the city of Paris in new construction every week, there is an urgent challenge to bring together those who finance this large amount of new construction with the policy-makers who can enable new construction finance to evolve towards zero emissions.
In partnership with the BrightTalk ESG summit, UNEP FI will be presenting updates on three work streams related to the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the SDGs. Financial institutions have a key role to play in implementing the world’s agreed goals.

UN Environment’s Finance Initiative, in collaboration with Climate Strategy & Partners, is organising a high-level roundtable on green tagging for energy efficiency finance as a side event to the Bloomberg Future of Energy Summit.
This high-level conference will take stock, two years after COP 21, of the significant committments by banks and investors on energy efficiency and identify ways to scale up energy efficiency investment. The event will culminate in a high-level segment with UNEP FI member CEO representation and occurs the day before the summit organised by the French President on the Paris Agreement.
The event aims to share best practice from the Republic of Ireland, the UK and further afield on how energy efficiency can be financed through private funds and innovative financing instruments, notably in the building and SME sectors. Speakers will focus on practical experience in developing, structuring and financing energy efficiency investment programmes.
The European Union’s Energy Union Framework Strategy includes energy efficiency as one of its five dimensions and states it is to be considered as an energy source in its own right. The ambitious Paris climate agreement also underlines the importance of energy efficiency. To realise its full potential, public funds will not suffice and private financing will have to be unlocked on a large scale. This webinar, organised in partnership with the European Commission, will discuss the use of energy efficient mortgages in Europe.
