- The 2016 Investor Summit on Climate Risk was the first major event on climate change for investors and businesses to discuss the far-reaching implications of the Paris Agreement. Ceres, the United Nations Foundation, and the United Nations Office for Partnerships co-hosted the Summit at the United Nations in NYC.
- The Summit explored the significant investment opportunities provided by the global climate deal involving 196 countries, with a focus on the types of capital flows necessary – involving many trillions of dollars – to achieve its ambitious global carbon-reducing goals; fast-growing opportunities to expand clean energy investment in developed and developing countries; and solutions to mitigating carbon asset risks, including portfolio de-carbonization and support for economic development that is less reliant on fossil fuels.
- The 2016 Investor Summit has since received widespread coverage on its significance in major outlets such as The Guardian, NPR, Financial Times, and International Business Times.
