The Paris Agreement brings UN countries together to undertake ambitious efforts to combat climate change and its effects. In this webinar, we’re delighted to collaborate with the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, thought leaders in the area of sustainable finance, to give an overview of the Paris Agreement, key concepts, current developments with a deep dive into EU Taxonomy. The second part of the webinar will discuss the operationalisation of climate disclosure including an introduction to the task force on climate-related financial disclosures and learnings from their think tank.
