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.

December 14, 12:00 - 13:00 EST, Nature Positive Pavilion
Unlocking private finance for nature by considering nature alongside net zero in policy frameworks through private sector net zero transition planning. Please find the event invitation with more detail here, and our associated report, co-produced with Aviva, here(from Dec 14th).
December 14, 13:30 - 14:30 EST, Nature Positive Pavilion
Stocktake of nature-related investments and risk management frameworks with a focus on taxonomy-based investment frameworks and scenario analysis for forward-looking financial risk management frameworks. Read the report here.
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.
