The renewed US domestic climate agenda will drive demand for green innovation and investments with new approaches to scaling up finance for climate-aligned sectors and infrastructure. According to a recent Princeton University study, Net Zero America, in order for the United States to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions economywide by 2050 it would require at least $2.5 trillion in upfront additional capital investment over the next decade. Yet, the cost for inaction and the impact on the environment, human health and the economy is immeasurable.

What the broader financial community does now will help determine the fate of the planet on which humanity relies. This session will explore the innovations and pathways needed for the financial system to accelerate investments toward a zero-carbon economy.
