UNEP FI has given the financial sector a voice with the unveiling of a position paper on the upcoming Rio+20 Conference in late April. The document signed by UNEP FI’s co-Chairs Barbara Krumsiek and Richard Burrett makes a clear statement to Rio+20 country delegates on the role of the financial sector in achieving sustainable development. It offers a set of recommendations on how the international community and policy-makers can further enable and incentivise sustainable finance at Rio+20. Rio+20, or the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, marks the 20th anniversary of the seminal 1992 Earth Summit of Rio de Janeiro. Hundreds of delegates from the private sector, among them UNEP FI members, are expected to join the thousands more who will attend the event. More information here.
