​Mark Hillsdon, a freelance sustainabilty journalist, says that "the system is structured to reduce the kind of long-term investment that we need. We want the financial system to solve our problems, not cause new ones."

Key themes of the briefing include:

  • What needs to be done for green finance to go mainstream
  • How fintech is financing the SDGs
  • Innovating to make an impact – green finance disruptors
  • Turning risk into climate rewards for developing countries
  • The role forests have to play in limiting climate change and the lack of current funding to end deforestation

Terry Slavin, editor of Ethical Corporation's magazine, reports that "less than 10% of climate finance is going to frontline communities that are in the best position to protect forests."
