Join us on the second day of Climate Finance Week Ireland for Transition Finance Day, where we explore the pivotal role of finance in shaping a sustainable, low-carbon future. Transition finance involves investments, strategies, and financial mechanisms designed to support the shift from carbon-intensive industries to more sustainable and environmentally friendly practices. This shift is crucial in our collective efforts to combat climate change, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and achieve net-zero targets. Transition Finance Day features discussions, insights, and best practices related to transition finance. Explore innovative strategies, investment opportunities, and the latest trends in sustainable finance. Together, we'll chart a course towards a more sustainable world, reduce our carbon footprint, and work towards achieving our net-zero emissions goals.

When considering responsible investing we look at it through two lenses. The first is integrating investment preferences into portfolio, for example excluding ESG or climate laggards. The second involves our voting and engagement efforts. Both aspects play an important role in achieving investment goals, join us for this conversation on the role of stewardship in achieving our climate goals.
