Frequently asked questions about the Investor Summit on Climate risk are answered here.

The 2014 Investor Summit will be the sixth time the United Nations Foundation, the United Nations Office for Partnerships and Ceres bring together leading global financial players to address climate and energy challenges.

At the last summit, more than 520 financial, corporate, and investor leaders with more than $22 trillion in combined assets highlighted the fact that private investment in climate change solutions is crucial for addressing the climate crisis and will not happen at the necessary scale without climate and energy policies that limit emissions and put a price on carbon.
