"EMnet working Group''

''Greening of the Economy"

 

OECD Headquarters, Paris

5 October, 2015

Agenda


The ‘Greening of the Economy’ Working Group will bring together OECD expertise and multinational companies to discuss the challenges and opportunities of green infrastructure investment in emerging economies.

The first EMnet Working Group on the ‘Greening of the Economy’ aims at discussing the private sector’s perspective on the challenges multinational companies face when investing in green projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

In an intimate setting, participants will discuss the work the OECD has carried out on the topics of business climate for green investments, barriers to international investment in clean energy, green investment financing and innovation and green growth.

The meeting will take place in the framework of the OECD 2015 Development Centre Week (DEV Week) and is organised by the Emerging Markets Network (EMnet), the OECD Development Centre’s business platform for policy dialogue and analysis of business trends in emerging economies. Our events are closed to the public and media, and operate under Chatham House rule in order to trigger outspoken discussions on an informal basis. Participants are mainly top executives (CEOs, Vice-Presidents, Managing Directors, CFOs, Heads of Strategy, Chief Economists) of multinational companies from a diverse range of sectors, willing to engage in debates with senior policy makers (up to Heads of State and Ministers) and OECD experts.
