Bankers for Net Zero – the UK Chapter of the UN-convened Net-Zero Banking Alliance – joins forces with Rewired.Earth, the Climate Safe Lending Network, British Business Bank (BBB) and Icebreaker One in Sharm el-Sheikh in a coordinated move to ensure a just and fair transition to net zero. Financial institutions and policymakers are invited to join the coalition and contribute meaningful action towards accelerating the far-reaching changes needed to keep global heating to under 1.5 degrees in a financially and economically sustainable way.
