The financial sector plays such a critical role in the net-zero transition.  We need more funding, not just for new green activities but also for transition activities. This means channelling financing to decarbonise power generation, and other aspects of our economy – be it buildings or transport.  That is the only way the world can achieve net zero by 2050.”
