America Square Conference Centre, London - 1 DayWednesday
The Future of Climate Finance is an exclusive one-day conference held in the heart of London that will address the escalating mobilisation of finance in favour of sustainable global development.
Over $650 billion poured into climate-focused funds worldwide in 2021 and 2022 is set to be another record-breaking year for green finance. As the environmental stakes increase and the vocal and natural warnings grow menacingly stark, pressure on the global investment industry to tackle climate change is higher than ever before.
There is no vaccine against the potential of a climate crisis and the rapidly shifting change in sentiment towards those that can assist in delivering a greener future is already widening the gap between winners and losers. There is no end of money to be made by those who anticipate the number of opportunities brought about by this uneven pace of change.
Moreover, the politics of climate change continues to have significant implications for how capital markets are expected to perform. Is this endless pursuit of growth compatible with an urgent need to slash carbon emissions? Or is this the end of capitalism as we know it?
Backed by hard data and intelligent editorial insight, The Future of Climate Finance unites Capital Monitor’s dedication to examining the impact of sustainable investment on our environment with New Statesman’s audience of key influencers in Westminster, Whitehall and the City.
Join us on 8th June 2022 to hear high-level representatives from global finance, along with senior business leaders, policymakers and regulators, distill the latest trends and initiatives driving the future of green finance.

The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-30) has started. However, the UN Sustainable Development Goals on life below water (SDG14) remains the most underfunded goal. The ocean needs innovative, passionate leaders to drive the sustainable blue economy and ensure a healthy future. Scientists, academics, entrepreneurs and technology developers are pushing the frontiers of exploration and innovation to monitor ocean health, and counter the big challenges facing the ocean, including climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution.
Economist Impact’s Ocean Changemakers Challenge showcases leading changemakers working to develop business solutions to ocean-related sustainability challenges. The competition, now in its third year, is aimed at early-career researchers and professionals.
In celebration of World Ocean Day, this session will highlight the experiences of past winners and mentors, and identify what this year’s judges are looking for as they select the 2022 changemakers. Speakers will demonstrate the impact of entrepreneurs on the restoration of ocean health and advancing a sustainable ocean economy, and the crucial role of tech and innovation in making tangible change.
What does it take to be a great ocean entrepreneur?
What are the key challenges of working in ocean tech and innovation, and what lessons can be shared?
How can great business ideas for ocean sustainability be scaled up?
