13:20 – 14:40 EET — ​​The role of export credits in financing the green transition

As emerging markets confront this massive climate funding gap, we must find all financing tools available. With a yearly turnover of USD 700 billion export credit agencies have an enormous potential to contribute. At the same time, many emerging and developing economies are highly indebted and more funding is needed to support growth and sustainable development, as well as climate mitigation efforts. Funding that makes green investments affordable. Join us to learn more of how export finance and Swedish technology was an important contribution to the largest solar project in Angola, combining export and development finance in one competitive package. We will also discuss how the instrument of export finance can be used more broadly to drive green transition around the globe. ICC, Volvo Cars, and Export Development Canada will share their experiences.
