8:30am New York | 1:30pm London

Please join Climate Bonds Initiative (CBI), Climate Policy Initiative (CPI), and RMI for a webinar on their recently released working paper, Guidelines for Financing a Credible Coal Transition. These guidelines, developed in consultation with stakeholders and experts from public, private, and civil society institutions, provide a framework for assessing the climate and social credibility of financial transactions that aim to accelerate a managed phaseout of coal-fired power plants.

During the webinar, you’ll hear from a representative from the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero on the credibility risks of financing a coal transition, and CBI, CPI, and RMI will provide an overview of how the guidelines can help manage these risks. As we recognize that transition finance for the coal-to-clean transition is a new and rapidly evolving space, we look forward to hearing additional feedback, perspectives, and questions that can shape the future direction of this work.
