HomeRI ResourceEcofinClimate action: The ripple became a swell and real progress is underway
Research and White Paper

Over the past few decades, climate change has moved from the fringe to the main stage, a process which was accelerated by the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 21) and the resulting Paris Agreement in 2015. Today, nobody can ignore the reality of climate change or the powerful momentum to effect change from all corners of society: governments, central banks, companies, academics, innovators and citizens are collectively focused on solving this existential issue. What started as a ripple, driven primarily by environmentalists and idealists, has become a tsunami of actions by all stakeholders. Hence, we think it is worth taking stock of where we are and what actions are being taken, with the caveat that we cannot capture all the initiatives and policies across geographies and industries.
