Since 2018 and the framing of initial approaches for Paris Alignment by leading public and private institutions, the Climate Action in Financial Institutions Initiative acts as a major international forum for financial institutions professionals to exchange on the development and implementation of emerging practices on Paris Alignment and connect the dots between both public and private financial institutions, but also with think tank experts and other stakeholders.

While the topic of ‘alignment’ with the Paris Agreement and more broadly the Sustainable Development Goals will be a main topic of discussion of the Finance in Common Summit, this workshop will aim to continue the series of technical exchanges between financial institutions’ practitioners on the rolling out of their approaches, which started at COP24 in Katowice.

Audience: Representatives of Supporting Institutions of the Climate Action in Financial Institutions Initiative and invited experts.
