Under the Chinese presidency and in the context of its work in the G20 Energy Efficiency Finance Task Group Secretariat, UNEP FI organized a workshop on Enhancing Financial Flows for Energy Efficiency in the Building Sector in China, with the support of SWITCH-Asia.
Held on April 15th back to back to the G20 meeting on energy and sustainability, this workshop gathered around 60 participants and allowed for an exchange of experience, best practices and innovative financing solutions between Chinese banks, international development banks, Chinese policy makers and experts.
As part of the workshop, Chinese banks were invited to join the first global mobilization of the financial sector on energy efficiency presented at the Paris Climate Conference by endorsing the Statement by Financial Institutions on Energy Efficiency.
