Objectives of the Climate Investment Summit
The Climate Investment Summit convenes 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.
In connection to its role as a key event in the Climate Investment Coalition’s roadmap to COP26, the Climate Investment Summit will act as a unique and leading global forum for the practice of financing and investing in global climate solutions.
The Climate Investment Summit:
Acts as a valuable platform for Nordic and European institutional investor announcements on the road to COP26.
Engages key decision-makers on agenda items including achieving a green recovery, EU’s Green New Deal and the US’ Build Back Better plan.
Presents thought leadership on new energy technologies to accelerate global decarbonisation and the net-zero transition.
Engages cross-sector delegates in matchmaking for business development to increase investments in selected emerging and developed markets.
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.
