June/July was a busy period on the sustainable finance front. The FSB released the final report from its Task Force on Climate Related Disclosures, the G20 released its latest study group material on Green Finance and the EU High-Level Expert Group on Sustainable Finance (HLEG) produced it’s interim report plus held a stakeholders day in Brussels at which I spoke. And we did a London event to promote it. I also produced one op-ed published in the Daily Telegraph and 2 others on websites focussing on G20 material. There are links to all the material on the Media page of this website.
APRA Executive Board member Geoff Summerhayes has recently made a ground-breaking speech about the financial risks from climate change, which embodies all the issues we have been raising via Climate Alliance Australia. This has the potential to completely change the debate there, at least in the financial sector. The speech can be found here.
10.01.17. I have just added a new page to summarise my work on climate change and sustainable finance.
Hello, this website is not intended for blogging. I dont really ‘do’ comments on events in real time. I prefer to think about what is going on and offer considered reflections via my speeches/presentations/articles. But if you would like to ask me any questions or comment on anything I have written, please do.
