The Global Climate Divest-Invest Summit

financing the future

The Global Climate Divest-Invest Summit

10-11 September 2019

Two Oceans Aquarium, Cape Town, South Africa



The world is building from a fossil fuel past to a renewable energy future. With little time left before we lock in irreversible climate impacts, people are responding by taking action. Faith leaders, university administrators, and municipal governments are now all looking at how they can transform finance for the future.

The Global Climate Divest-Invest Summit in Cape Town will:

  • Provide tools and resources to align capital with climate goals.
  • Challenge the global community to leave fossil fuels in the ground.
  • Underscore the urgent need for investments that help developing nations leapfrog dirty development and provide clean energy access.
  • Set a vision for how we can finance the future.

Investors, with trillions in assets, have the power to move faster than governments and catalyze the transition to renewable, universally accessible energy by shifting capital out of the problems and into the solutions today.

Fossil fuel divestment and clean energy investment is more important than ever.

Who should attend

  • Financial officers, directors, trustees or representatives of:
    • Retirement funds, universities, private schools with endowed funds, foundations, religious bodies, and NGOs
  • Civil society representatives and climate activists interested in financial activism
  • Investment managers, asset managers and asset consultants
