Green Capital on WGES 2018 Agenda

Green capital will be the focus of discussions at the annual World Green Economy Summit (WGES 2018) amid the global commitments to build a green and sustainable world economy.

Green finance refers to the financing of investments that provide environmental benefits in the broader context of environmentally sustainable development.

WGES 2018 will host discussions on how to unlock this capital. With input from governments, businesses, financial institutions and investment advisors, the summit will examine current climate-finance gaps in order to define areas where investments are most needed. It will also shed light on green investment vehicles, climate-change reporting, carbon pricing as an instrument to raise green capital and the widespread problem of greenwashing.

WGES is set to take place October 24 and 25 under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ruler, Dubai.
