Unveiling Opportunities and Managing Risks in Climate Finance

The market has a fundamental challenge in addressing the green investment gap with market and investment solutions. It is estimated that worldwide 30% of the banking portfolio must be green by 2030 if we want to meet the objectives, which represents a total amount of US $ 44.5 billion. 

This entails a great business opportunity especially visible in sectors such as renewable energy, sustainable construction, waste management, sustainable transport, smart sustainable agriculture, etc. But, at the same time, it is essential to analyze and manage the risks associated specially to climate change.

Join us for an insightful event where we will seek to better understand the nature of the challenges and risks, but at the same time the opportunities that arise when fully incorporating climate-related aspects into the business strategy, as increasingly demand clients, investors, employees, regulators, and supervisors.
