Wednesday 10 November from 5pm to 6pm

In public discussion, climate finance is often bandied around with banks positioning themselves as positive actors in addressing climate change. But what do they do?

This panel examines how the finance sector is shifting to incorporate climate modelling into its risk assessments for investments, how finance can create new ‘green’ markets and products, be used for investing in ‘green infrastructure’, and how climate finance is being used for addressing international climate injustice for those most affected by climate change such as the Pacific.

Speakers

This event is part of the Sydney Environment Institute's Extraction Series that probes the use, impact and future of gas, coal and lead extraction in Australia at a critical point in our changing climate. This event series is part of the Unsettling Resources research project that investigates the dependence of our energy use and systems on conventional energy and the global shift to renewables. Professor Susan Park, Research Lead on the Unsettling Resources project, will open the event.
