Climate Investment Summit aims to accelerate private climate investments by showcasing global best practice and enabling policy frameworks, to accelerate climate action and promote green economic recovery.
Objectives of the Climate Investment Summit
The Climate Investment Summit will convene globally experienced leaders in green energy and climate investments to catalyse private investments in the energy transition in order to raise the global ambition required for the world to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
The Summit is a globally leading event that will define and scale proven and emerging business models and financing methods for climate investments across sectors and geographies. It will also promote green economic regeneration strategies for a post-pandemic economic recovery that ensures climate remains at the forefront of the global agenda and prioritises a just and green energy transition.

The Climate Investment Summit is a key event on the Climate Investment Coalition's (CIC) Roadmap leading to COP26 and beyond.
CIC is the leading global public-private partnership mobilising ambitious financial investments towards clean energy and climate solutions now and in the coming decade has been established by the Government of Denmark, Insurance & Pension Denmark, the Institutional Investor Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) and World Climate Foundation with the aim to enhance public and private collaboration, share best practices and increase global climate action.
CIC builds on the 50 billion USD commitment by Danish pension funds towards green investments at Climate Action Summit in September 2019. Today, the Coalition mobilises institutional investors globally to increase investments in the green transition towards 2030, highlighting that investors are ready with capital for green investments if governments can secure investment enabling regulatory frameworks. A pledge tracking mechanism will be developed to monitor the allocation and use of the gathered commitments and ensure their impact on the real economy.
In addition, the Coalition is working closely with global governments to share and scale best practice framework conditions to attract finance across geographies.
