    ON THE ROAD TO COP21 AND AFTER:

    Innovative Financing For Sustainable Business 

     


    COP21 is upon us. The international conference on climate change taking place in Paris in December is about joining forces in order to maintain global warming below 2°C. We will only be able to achieve this ambitious and necessary goal with concrete actions. The private sector thus has a major role to play to enable the transition towards a low carbon economy. However, the economic model still remains a challenge for many corporations: how do we fund sustainable projects and new business models? How can investments be channeled towards them?

    Join us for an exceptional round table at the Assemblée Nationale, where acknowledged financial experts will explain which tools are available and are currently being designed to drive the economy of the future.
