Plenary Session. Global Transition to a Sustainable Future and Russia’s Place Within it
Wednesday, September 29
09:50 - 11:30
How will the global climate agenda evolve by 2030 and 2050? What changes await the capitalist model of the economy? How can governments and business manage new financial risks? How Russia's position can be included into the global sustainable development agenda?
The UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 and the Paris Agreement on Climate have defined the trend of global economic development until 2030. The result should be a long-term sustainable system of global development, which will require trillion-dollar investments.
In order to raise these funds, a responsible financing system is already being developed that will cover new environmental, social and governance risks and become the basis of a new economic reality.
