There is growing consensus that rapid coal phaseout will be required to meet a global net zero by 2050 goal. On top of the adverse social and environmental impacts of coal, the economics are increasingly tipping the scales against investment in coal-fired generation, as renewable energy has become cost-competitive in countries around the world. As governments and financial institutions strengthen their commitments to coal phaseout, it is imperative to ensure a transition to clean energy is enacted in a just and equitable way. This panel will convene voices from multilateral development banks, energy investors, renewable energy developers and NGOs to discuss various mechanisms to incentivise a rapid and equitable shift of finance away from coal.

Format: This event will be held in hybrid format in the Wind Pavilion, Hall 5, Blue Zone, Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow, UK. Livestreaming will be available for those who are unable to attend in-person.
