2nd OECD Green Investment Financing Forum

 

Building on the success of the inaugural Green Investment Financing Forum in 2014, the OECD held its 2nd Green Investment Financing Forum on 19-20 May 2015 at OECD Paris. In this defining year for climate change policy and low-carbon investment, OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría welcomed senior government officials and key actors in financing green infrastructure investment for a targeted discussion under the Chatham House Rule.

The Forum addressed new developments relating to green investment banks. It also highlighted promising investment channels with a special focus on green bonds and de-risking approaches to facilitate green infrastructure investment by institutional investors in OECD countries, emerging economies and developing countries.
