Gold Standard’s Conference, Grow to Zero 2023:  Catalysing Finance for Impact

How can we rapidly scale up finance for the Global Goals?

How can we best scale quickly evolving carbon markets with integrity?

What is the role of blended finance or other approaches to collective action?

What role does digitisation play across the board?

These questions and more will be considered at Gold Standard’s conference, Grow to Zero 2023. With the aim of provoking challenging discussions, offering innovative solutions and instigating new collaborations, all participants will be inspired.

Recent years have seen great advancements and new innovations that are helping us on our way to meeting the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.  Carbon markets are reaching new heights and interest in sustainable investing is rapidly increasing. Companies and investors are keener than ever to implement net-zero goals and governments are acting on their national plans for climate change and sustainable development. Nevertheless, we are not on the trajectory to limit global average temperature increase to 1.5oC, and so we need to drive progress at a much greater pace.

Gold Standard will continue to drive integrity, credibility and trust in carbon markets, support companies on their journey towards net zero and sustainable value chains, and develop innovative tools to unlock finance for sustainable development. But we can only do so with the support of our community. Grow to Zero offers us all a chance to come together to collaboratively uncover and advance solutions to these vital questions.

This two-day conference is designed to inform and engage a wide range of participants including project developers, fund manager and impact investors, government representatives and sustainability professionals. With a variety of session formats including panels, workshops, breakouts, networking booths and a special evening networking event, it is bound to create important connections and instigate growth towards net-zero.”
