What is the best way for the Nordics to reduce global emissions? What are the implications for sustainable finance? The Nordic countries perform well in global sustainability rankings.

Nordic financial institutions have supported this progress by adopting the principles of Green financing at a very early stage. What are the next steps?

Did you know that almost one billion people worldwide still lack access to electricity? These people have difficulty even getting light to cook or read during dark hours. Not to mention charging their phones. In today’s world, access to electricity is one of the main preconditions of prosperity growth.
A new award-winning programme, Beyond the Grid Fund, has proven how a vision of scale with local solutions and an openness for exploring new ways of collaborating can result in innovation, break business- as-usual trends and bring us closer to realizing the sustainable development goals.
Experts from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) and the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation (NEFCO) will together with private sector investors share their experience and look into how we can get further involved in global climate action, in a financially and socially viable way.
Come and engage yourself in exciting conversations and expand your network with people who shares your interest in the climate.
