Global Divestment Conference in Paris: The UNEP Inquiry Highlights Opportunities for a Sustainable Financial System

Date: 01 Sep 2015

Financial and government experts are meeting in Paris, just months ahead of the convening of the UN Climate Conference. The conference aims to further mobilize support for fossil fuel divestment, discuss the risks of a so-called carbon bubble, and highlight opportunities for a sustainable financial system. The conference has been organized by 350.org and the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament. The UNEP Inquiry into the Design of a Sustainable Financial System will make a presentation of highlights of its work over the last two years and its findings.
