Climate change presents one of the largest threats to sustainable development and its widespread, unprecedented impacts disproportionately burden the poorest and most vulnerable communities. The dress rehearsal is done--- the climate emergency intensifies with a need for both public and private sectors to unite and address global temperatures to mobilize the USD $3-5 trillion dollars (GIIN.org) annually to make the SDGs a reality. The Green Accelerator comes to Davos at an invite-only side event to the World Economic Forum meetings in Davos on 25th May 2022 with presence from senior government, investment management, innovators, and academia.
Curated and geared up in advance to COP27 in Egypt this year, the panel will begin with remarks from The Minister of International Cooperation of the Arab Republic of Egypt, H.E. Rania Al-Mashat together with Dr. Laura-Marie Topfer a sustainable finance expert and Partner at Extantia Capital. Timely, and a follow-up from the recent Glasgow discussions at COP26.
A focus on emerging market impact investors also come to the stage such as Barbara Ann Bernard, Founder & CIO of Wincrest Capital, moderated by Michael Stirling, Chairman and CEO of Stirling Infrastructure Partners. Followed by one of the world’s authorities on planetary boundaries, Professor Johan Rockstrom, an internationally recognized scientist and Professor of Environmental Science, PIK at the Stockholm Resilience Centre, will lead the second panel on climate solutions and the role technology has in safeguarding our planet.
