The Road to True Net Zero: Financing a Just Transition

SHARE

Few sectors have the power to speed a just energy transition worldwide – or hit the brakes – like global finance.

For decades, the global financial system has pumped billions into oil, gas, and coal projects across the planet, fueling climate devastation and trapping Global South nations pummeled by heatwaves, storms, and floods in endless cycles of borrowing and debt.

Meanwhile, the wealthy countries responsible for the majority of global emissions promise billions in support – and rarely deliver.

It's time to do better. We work to reform global finance to spur rapid energy transition across the planet and get developing nations the fair credit and funding they need to adapt to a warmer world and build thriving clean energy economies.

Fair and Accessible Credit for Global South Nations

Full Funding for Adaptation and Loss and Damage
