What is the Role of Banks in Battling Climate Change?

Will the Banks Join in the Glasgow Agreement?

Global banks, asset management companies, asset owners and financial firms have been the most reticent and tardy in aligning their business models to climate goals. Can industries really adopt a green agenda without help from the financial industry? How can commercial and private banks be persuaded to invest in green infrastructure, technologies and businesses? What kind of measurable commitments can banks and financial institutions make, especially to the developing nations?
