Green Horizons Summit at COP26

In 2021, we were proud to take part the Green Horizons Summit (GHS@COP26), organized by the City of London Corporation and the Green Finance Institute and sponsored by Aon, which set out to mobilize private capital in the global push to achieve net-zero emissions across the economy by 2050. GHS@COP26 tackled the big questions we face in accelerating the flow of capital into climate and nature friendly investments, translating commitments into action and helping financial institutions “green” their business models.

Aon was privileged to share perspectives and insights on several key topics, including financing net-zero, modeling climate risk, disaster resilience and the role of insurance and investment in mitigating and managing risk.
