Transitioning to net zero in the Middle East and North Africa

01 March, 2023LIBF MENA Webinar
The London Institute of Banking & Finance MENA held a webinar regarding the net zero alignment of financial institutions post Paris Agreement in the GCC and MENA region.

With the shadow of COP27 and the emergence of COP28, the region's financial institutions and governing bodies have pursued their net zero goals, and this webinar examined, identified, and highlighted key strategical activity the MENA region has undertaken to ensure sustainable finance.

Climate risk experts Emmanueal Rondeau, Dr. Clarisse Simonek, Dr. Perihan Abdelghaly and Andrew Cunninghan discussed climate pledges in the GCC region, who is in and who is not, leaders and laggards, and latest trends observed.

The webinar was presented in a conference panel format and discussed the whitepaper released by LIBF MENA. There was also an opportunity for a Q&A session to explore the way forward in delivering net zero in the GCC region.
