A Global Tipping Point: The Power of Global Capital Markets in the Fight Against Climate Change

Apr 23 2021, 15:30 BST - Apr 23 2021, 17:00 BST

Apr 23 2021, 10:30 EDT - Apr 23 2021, 12:00 EDT

Bloomberg invites you to join a discussion on the power of global capital markets in the fight against climate change. ‌

The casualties of the climate crisis could include financial stability, the global economy, and the value of investments. As governments catch up to the realities of climate change, it is inevitable that the policy response will continue to gather pace. This event will focus on the role governments and regulators can play in facilitating the transition to a low-carbon economy. ‌

Host Michael R. Bloomberg, U.N. Special Envoy for Climate Ambition and Solutions, will be joined by U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet L. Yellen, European Central Bank President, Christine Lagarde and other global leaders in sustainable finance. ‌

Two panel discussions will focus on the critical need for transparency around climate risks and the opportunities that come with climate finance. ‌
