intro - CCAC 2024

The transition to a low-carbon economy is impacting every sector in every country. Climate action has become an imperative for both the real economy and finance, with science-based pathways for preventing the costliest warming driving a global push for an orderly transition away from fossil fuels.

Our 2024 Capital for Climate Action Conference will convene leaders from across the investment and financial industries for thought-provoking discussion of the challenges and opportunities that define this moment in the shift to a new era of sustainable growth.

  • The shift to a clean-energy economy stands at a crossroads. Earth has just endured its hottest year on record, with temperature-rise breaching the 1.5-degree Celsius threshold for preventing the costliest warming. Meanwhile, nearly 200 countries have pledged to triple reliance on renewable energy and double energy efficiency by 2030.

  • A paradigm shift in sustainability regulation means that companies and investors are facing an influx of disclosure requirements. Participants across capital markets are charged with translating climate risk into current value and financing a massive shift to a clean-energy economy.

  • We will address critical issues at the heart of the low-carbon transition, including financing real decarbonization, opportunity in clean technologies, and the impacts of biodiversity and regulation, as well as the need for alignment of policy, investment, innovation and action.
