A wide range of government delegates, leaders from banking and finance, multilateral institutions and organizations, high-level experts from the technology sector and various economic sectors heeded the World Bank’s call to participate in this new conference format aimed at promoting global dialogue to discuss innovative ways to accelerate globally necessary climate action.
Under the agenda item “Mobilizing the Private Sector for Green Solutions“, speakers from ThomasLloyd T.U. Michael Sieg, Group Chairman and CEO, and Tony Coveney, Head of Merchant Banking and CEO Americas, spoke to leading representatives from the political, economic and technology fields in various forums about the successful implementation of climate-friendly infrastructure projects undertaken in emerging market countries in Asia.
In addition to ThomasLloyd, other speakers at this forum included Alzbeta Klein, Director of Climate Business at the International Finance Corporation, Jean-Marc Duvoisin, CEO of Nestlé Nespresso SA, Christoph Jungfleisch, Director of Credit at Mobisol, Manash Mitra, Director of Credit and Advisory at Tata Cleantech Capital Limited and Jonathan Taylor, Vice President of the European Investment Bank.
“We are extremely pleased to be invited to the first Innovate4Climate conference and thus to continue our close cooperation with the World Bank and IFC. We are happy to support in the future as a partner and competent person this format of the world conference, which has underlined much more the importance of a joint dialogue between policy makers and economists to accelerate global climate action.”
