4th OECD Green Investment Financing Forum

24-25 October 2017 09h00-18h00 OECD Conference Centre, CC1, Paris

Achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement and broader set of environmental objectives linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will require:

  • domestic ambition to rapidly and efficiently decarbonise and enhance resilience in all sectors
  • well-aligned policies across the whole of government
  • strong and consistent signalling and well-targeted policy interventions to engage and mobilise industry and private finance, combined with a conducive investment environment
  • increased global co-operation between state and non-state actors, including financial and technical support for developing countries
  • monitoring of progress in green investment and financing and of environmental outcomes

Policies need to be cost-effective and supported by robust, evidence-based analysis, and reflect an understanding of the perspectives and constraints of investors, who will be the engine of the transition to a green and sustainable economy.

This event brings together leading actors from the green finance and investment community to promote effective engagement, collaboration and action on green finance and investment. This includes institutional investors, asset managers, ministries of finance and central banks, financial regulators, commercial and investment banks, international climate funds, multilateral development banks, green investment banks, corporations, civil society, philanthropic sectors and more.


  • Short-term actions and long-term ambitions: This session will address the short and long-term actions needed to meet the Paris Agreement and examine the role of global actors and international institutions in unlocking green finance globally in support of low-carbon pathways.

  • Opportunities for green investment: better planning and mobilisation. This session will focus on issues related to the design, development and delivery of pipelines of green infrastructure projects in support of national low-carbon plans.

  • Driving the low-carbon transition through a sustainable financial system. This session will look at options for ensuring that the financial system can deliver the transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy.

  • This session will focus on channels for green finance and investment, including: approaches for funding green projects in cities; the role of green bonds; investment and financing platforms to channel institutional investment to green infrastructure in developing and emerging economies; and financing for adaptation.
