The Open Innovation Platform – A Call for More Sustainable Financial Centres in Europe

A better tomorrow awaits if we succeed in limiting global warming to 1.5°C, yet we are hopelessly off-target in capping rising temperatures, and it’s becoming exceedingly difficult to do so. We know that time is quickly running out, that taking climate action makes financial sense, and that we need to channel trillions to mitigate climate change and accelerate the turn to zero net carbon. So what does this mean for European financial centres and how can they best prepare to the inevitable shift towards green and sustainable finance? The new climate reality is a ‘use it or lose it’ moment for financial centres in Europe. The UN-led Financial Centres for Sustainability (FC4S) wants to make sure it is the former – read on to find out how.

A just climate transition is the name of the game in Sweden
