Stan Dupre discusses how new regulations and pressure from investors are key to achieve the UN climate goals.


Since 2015, ahead of COP21 and the signature of the Paris agreement, governments and regulators in many countries, soon followed by many banks and investors, became cognizant of their place at the heart of global issues to achieve international climate goals.

Through many initiatives across the world, non-financial goals and disclosures requirements are being strengthen by both regulators and investors to ensure convergence of all actors and deeper understanding of the importance of global warming and the required pace of change that need to occur to tackle global ambitions.

Stan Dupré, the Founder and Executive Director of 2° Investing Initiative, a non-for-profit think tank working to align the financial sector with 2°C climate goals, comments on those new helpful regulations and requirements and discusses the crucial role and impact of retail investors in pushing forward and accelerating these efforts, and the opportunities and obstacles faced today.
