Day 1 Agenda: Climate Change, Green Finance and Sustainability Summit

There is no doubt about the crucial role of financial services in terms of achieving net zero. However, there is now a greater focus on the granular detail of how effective legal, regulatory, market and individual corporate initiatives are in terms of delivering on their promises.
