#6th edition

Spearheading financial innovations for the green transition, the European financial industry should mobilize to support the implementation of the green deal and serve the needs of the real economy.

Placed under the High Patronage of Mr Emmanuel Macron, President of the French Republic and under the Patronage of the French Minister for the Economy and Finance,

the 6th Climate Finance Day will be fully dedicated to these issues with the theme:
“Sustainable Finance: How to reboot the European real economy?”.

This year’s edition will focus on the EU policies as well as local issues. It will also showcase public and private financial mechanisms and tools available or to be designed in order to meet the needs of the different sectors of the European economy.

Due to COVID 19 and the Government restrictions, this year edition will be an hybrid event (onsite at the Palais Brongniart and online). On-site participation will be available for a limited number of participants (with all the restrictions and health measures in France). For the participants who can't physically attend, we offer a free access online.
