Following the success of its workshop on Climate Finance and Economics, the University of Sussex Business School joins forces with the University of Nottingham Business School to co-organise a two-day online conference exploring the key developments in climate finance within the financial and capital markets industry. The event features keynote speeches, presentations and panel discussions, with leading experts in the industry and policy-making.
