Financing the Race to Zero - Exponential Climate Action Summit II

April 22, 2021 - 8am EDT - 12:30pm EDT

Hosted by We Don't Have Time

Finance is about to undergo a major transformation in the next decade as capital needs to be reallocated to stabilize Earth’s climate. How close are we to a tipping point in the finance sector? How fast will the transformation unfold? What will happen next? Our societies need to halve CO2 emissions by 2030 and continue toward zero by 2050, by scaling climate solutions exponentially. Capital must enable the exponential transformation and the financial sector must be exponentially transformed At our second Exponential Climate Action Summit we bring together transformers, disruptors and enablers focusing on how to finance The Race to Zero. Join us.
