The EU has made vast efforts on climate change, with the EU taxonomy spearheading sustainable finance regulatory practice, developments of disclosure frameworks and the integration of climate risk into financial services. Yet challenges persist with divergence in standards and jurisdictional approaches, the need to tackle greenwashing and converging the real economic and financial markets to achieve effective net zero transition.

The face-to-face conference takes place
in Frankfurt on Thu 15 Sep 2022 09:00 – 18:00.

This conference brings together public sector agencies worldwide, emphasising the central importance of public-private interactions for success in this sphere. Participants form a powerful force for co-operation in setting standards. Topics for discussion include refining green products and instruments for more effective use of financial markets in combatting climate change, moving to a more holistic view of sustainability and, importantly, saying RIP to ESG.
