Financing Investment in Sustainable Infrastructure:
The OECD Committee on Financial Markets will be holding an OECD Financial Roundtable in the afternoon of the 19th October 2017 (15:00 to 18:00) focused on the topic of “Financing Investment in Sustainable Infrastructure”. The roundtable is a biannual informal dialogue between committee officials and private financial sector representatives and stakeholders. It is taking place during “Paris Infrastructure Week”, which features week-long events that will bring a number of experts to Paris.
The discussion will address the issue of financing investment of sustainable infrastructure through:
- Including environmental and inclusiveness aspects
- Financing innovation
- Data collection on the financial and non-financial characteristics of infrastructure, and the development of infrastructure as an asset class.
This Roundtable will take place at the OECD Headquarters in Paris (www.oecd.org/conferencecentre) and will be chaired by Grant Spencer, Deputy Governor and Head of Financial Stability, Reserve Bank of New Zealand, and Chair of the Committee on Financial Markets.
