This section provides the last press releases and the future events the NGFS is involved in.
The NGFS organizes a full-day conference to present its first comprehensive report on Wednesday 17th April, 2019 in Paris. The conference will gather its 34 members and 5 observers, representing the 5 continents.
The lesson drawn from the first 16 months of NGFS activity is that climate change presents significant financial risks that can only be mitigated through early and orderly transition. There is a need for global collective leadership and action across countries. The NGFS, as a coalition of the willing and a voluntary-based forum, is acknowledging this and its report is proposing first recommendations aiming at facilitating the role of the financial sector in achieving the objectives of the 2015 Paris Agreement.
In the morning, the conference will be restricted to central bankers and supervisors –NGFS members and non NGFS members-. In the afternoon, the event will gather the regulators, their stake-holders and the representatives of the financial industry and be open to the press.
A video of the conference will be available in the coming days
At the Annual Meeting in Bali, the World Bank Group in partnership with the NGFS organized a high level panel discussion on the role of regulators and central banks for scaling up green finance.
