About The 2017 Climate Change Investment and Finance Summit
The 2017 IGCC Summit saw over 200 attendees from across the finance industry come together over two days to focus on climate change impacts, against a backdrop of an ever-evolving climate policy landscape.
Highlights included the trustee training on the fiduciary responsibilities of boards, the CEO/CIO Panel, the latest in investment tools and practices and thematic sessions covering energy, policy, opportunity, engagement, climate change disclosure requirements for both investors and corporates and emerging opportunities in the land sector. A special dinner with Professor Admiral Chris Barrie and Waleed Aly reminded us of the urgency to act and challenged all attendees to step up.
IGCC also launched two new reports on Coal, Carbon and the Community: Investing in a Just transition and Commodities, Climate Investors and the Land: A Toolkit for Institutional Investors.
The Summit was a fantastic success and we would like to thank all the speakers, sponsors and attendees for contributing to the event. Presentations and photos are now available and videos will be available very soon.
