PROGRAM

Climate business is the economic growth story of today—and tomorrow. As of 2018, 189 countries have submitted plans to shift their economies and infrastructure to reduce carbon and increase their resilience to climate change. IFC estimates that the climate action plans of 21 emerging market economies alone represent $23 trillion in climate-smart investment opportunities. Understanding these opportunities will define business success in the coming decades.

The forum will showcase leaders and practical solutions to the challenges of growing climate business investment in emerging markets, ranging from technologies and business models to financing structures and enabling policy frameworks.

The forum will explore these topics and more:

  • Scaling Up Green Buildings
  • Urban Mobility
  • Climate-proofing Municipal Infrastructure
  • Emerging Market Cities
  • The New Power Paradigm
  • Financing Distributed Generation
  • Megatrends in Climate Smart Manufacturing
  • Carbon Pricing
  • Greening Global Supply Chains
  • Banking on Climate
  • Scaling Green Bonds
