News From Cape Town to Copenhagen - UNEP FI brings the finance sector perspective to the decisive Climate Change Summit (COP 15)

From the 7th to 18th December 2009 the world's governments meet in Copenhagen, Denmark, to negotiate and hopefully agree on what the global response to climate change and a successor deal to the Kyoto Protocol will look like. All potential outcome scenarios suggest that businesses, private finance and the capital markets need to play a major role in the battle against climate change - much more concerted action will be needed than in the past. UNEP FI's presence at the COP 15 gives a voice to private lenders, insurers and investors on what is required by the future climate change regime in order to better mobilise the skills, entrepreneurship and products of the private sector in what remains one the greatest global challenges of the 21st century.

Information on the COP 15 can be found on its official website:
