EcoAct global banking sector roundtable: Net-zero targets & transition plan expectations

28 March, 2023 Zoom

EcoAct global banking sector roundtable: Net-zero targets & transition plan expectationsMore than one year on from the launch of the Glasgow Climate Pact at COP26, what is the status of banking sector alignment on net-zero targets? Join EcoAct and members of the Net-Zero Banking Alliance for this global update on how banks are preparing for the assessment of climate transition and physical risks across their investment and lending activities. We will explore the steps leading banks are taking in order to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 and protect biodiversity. Experts will explain how interim climate targets are being reassessed in response to volatile energy markets and new technology. Speakers will discuss how banks can address the increasing scrutiny their climate plans face from investors, as well as opportunities presented by the massive spending required for the green transition.

Join us to:
– Learn how different banks are implementing their net-zero plans
– Understand the challenges facing banks, including access to relevant data and working in conjunction with clients’ transition goals
– Explore the issue of greenwashing and the importance of robust targets to ensure credibility with regulator, clients, and investors
