WWF Sustainable Finance at COP15

Posted on 05 December 2022

Join WWF at COP15 for a series of four events on unlocking private finance that delivers on net-zero, nature-positive goals
  • Together, we'll explore why and how we need to mobilise finance at scale to deliver on global nature and climate goals.

  • In particular, world leaders in Montreal must agree a overarching nature-positive goal, set clear metrics, and as per Article 2.1(c) in the Paris Agreement, require private finance to align with that goal.

  • Read about WWF's overall expectations for COP15 here, including those specifically on finance, and find more details about our COP15 finance events below, or in the timeline infographic (with links) for download here.

Aligning Financial Flows for an Ecological Civilization - how to speed up momentum

December 16, 18:15 - 19:15 EST, Official side event 2, 512F

In this last high-level event, as delegates at COP15 enter the final phase of negotiations, we will focus on the role of finance in delivering the new Global Biodiversity Framework and delivering a nature-positive economy, and explore what needs to come out of COP15 to unlock the level of private investment that will drive a nature-positive transition. Ideally, we'll see parties agree a clear nature-positive goal and metrics, together with clear finance alignment targets, that signal what is required from the financial sector. We will also explore existing tools and transition planning approaches that will help galvanize support for financing nature-positive solutions and integrating nature into emerging net zero policy and regulatory frameworks.
