Scaling up public finance flows to support low carbon transition

07 Dec 2018

IPEEC will co-host a COP24 side event on "Public finance for low-carbon transitions: Changing paradigms, policies and practices" on 10 December from 14:00 to 15:00 at the International Conference Centre (MCK), EU Pavilion, COP24 site.

This event will bring participants from civil societies, governments and financial institutions together to discuss how to align public finance flows with the Paris Agreement’s objectives in Europe and G20 economies. To achieve this goal, it is crucial for European and G20 countries to provide enabling policy frameworks to incentivise clean energy investments.

Drawing on the work of the Big Shift Global Campaign, UNEP FI and the G20 Energy Efficiency Finance Task Group (EEFTG) under IPEEC and the G20, speakers will examine the leadership of the public finance community to deliver the Paris Agreement and assess the policies, practices and progress achieved in scaling up energy efficiency investments in Europe and G20 economies.

The EEFTG aims to enhance capital flows for energy efficiency investments in G20 economies by supporting countries to build robust, investment-grade policy and investment frameworks. It also serves as a forum for G20 policy makers to share best practices in policies and financial instruments through peer-to-peer workshops and direct engagement with members of the private and public finance community, industry and international organisations.
