Zurich, 25 September 2019 – In the face of the recently held UN Climate Action Summit in New York, BlueOrchard is proud to contribute to the discussion on how to increase private sector engagement in climate financing by providing you with our latest BlueOrchard Academy study “Rethinking Climate Finance”.

The study, compiled in cooperation with the FINEXUS Center for Financial Networks and Sustainability of the University of Zurich, discusses climate-related risks and their impact, especially on less-developed countries as well as potential economic losses in the financial system. Building on our experience and knowledge in the asset management industry, the study highlights the urgent need but also great opportunity for private financial players to develop portfolios that are more resilient to climate-related risks and thrive in low-carbon economies.
