Online Summit: Green Horizon 2020


The Pivotal Role of Finance

The City of London Corporation in collaboration with the World Economic Forum, and the Green Finance Institute, is hosting the Green Horizon Summit 2020 timed for when the UK would have been hosting COP26.

This 3-day online summit is an opportunity to make the most of the enforced delay and to build momentum and ambition in advance of COP 26 in November next year. It will clearly articulate that the climate narrative is consistent with the imperative of the recovery. Mark Carney, UN Special Envoy for Climate Action and Finance will also be present.

The green transition is the commercial opportunity of a generation. Capturing this opportunity will drive job creation and speed the return to growth. But for now, there is a persistent financing gap between net zero ambitions and reality. The Green Horizon Summit aims to close this gap.

The objective is to mobilise capital by converting momentum into action ahead of COP26.

The Summit will cover five major themes:

  1. Reporting, Risk, and Returns
  2. The Energy Transition
  3. Infrastructure and Green Growth
  4. Resilience and Adaptation
  5. Nature and Net Zero

The Summit will conclude with a focus on the concrete actions and commitments financial firms need to make ahead of COP26 in Glasgow.
