COP26 Conversations: Building Zero Carbon Economies: Aligning Technology, Policy & Finance

Manon Morel Thu, 16 December 2021

Last month, ClimateView was on the ground at COP26 to take part in important conversations about where we are collectively and the road ahead. In this series of posts, we come back on some of the important conversations that took place in the Swedish Pavilion. 

The wholesale decarbonisation of a city is something that has never been done before and it inevitably comes with its lot of uncertainty. And the uncertainty spans the planning of the city’s decarbonisation, but also crucially, how it will be financed. 

Where to invest, what investment will make the biggest difference, what ROI can be expected from a certain project but also what metrics are available to cities to make their case for funding are the burning questions that cities and financiers alike need answers to. 

In this panel session titled ‘Building Zero Carbon Economies: Aligning Technology, Policy & Finance, Farnam Bidgoli, Head of ESG Solutions EMEA, at HSBC meets with Tomer Shalit, CPO and Founder of ClimateView, Stefan Henningsson, Senior Climate Specialist at Nordea and Johan Henningsson, Head of Sustainability at SEK - Swedish Export Credit Corporation to raise these questions and many more, interrogating the role that technology can play in fostering a common language between cities and financiers.
