SSE joins Climate and Sustainable Finance Week in Latin America

28 September 2020

The first edition of the Climate and Sustainable Financing Week in Latin America and the Caribbean took place from September 21 to 25, 2020. The event arises from the prevailing need to dialogue on the financial, fiscal and economic mechanisms that will allow us to continue the transition to low-emission and climate-resilient development while achieving a transformative, fair and sustainable economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.  SSE participated in this multi-stakeholder dialogue that had 13 sessions and some parallel activities. The Climate and Sustainable Financing Week was a call for collaboration in the design of recovery packages from a gender perspective and human, indigenous and intergenerational rights, focusing on climate justice for all. Implement environmental tax reforms, align international cooperation with climate change needs at the national level, increase the involvement of the financial sector in sustainable reactivation, and in general, ensure that all financing flows are consistent with low-carbon and climate-resilient development as envisaged by the Paris Agreement, including a reduction in investments in the fossil fuel sector, are some of the proposals that were discussed throughout the week.

About the SSE

​The SSE initiative is a UN Partnership Programme organised by UNCTAD, the UN Global Compact, UNEP FI and the PRI. The SSE’s mission is to provide a global platform for exploring how exchanges, in collaboration with investors, companies (issuers), regulators, policymakers and relevant international organizations, can enhance performance on ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) issues and encourage sustainable investment, including the financing of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The SSE seeks to achieve this mission through an integrated programme of conducting evidence-based policy analysis, facilitating a network and forum for multi-stakeholder consensus-building, and providing technical assistance and advisory services.
