Anjali Bansal: The Opportunity to Drive Value Creation Through Climate Investing
March 22 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
About the event
When applied to large-scale problems, technology and innovation can help create solutions with an outsized impact on climate outcomes.
There is an extraordinary opportunity to build and scale technology-led solutions that can accelerate low-emissions and climate-resilient development pathways and drive impact for people and planet.
Investment in these climate technologies is required across the capital continuum – from early-stage venture capital funding to large public funds. For developing nations such as India, which are critical participants in achieving global sustainability, climate technologies must encompass adaptation, resilience, and mitigation to drive maximum value creation.
