The UN Climate Change Conference COP26 came to an end with nearly 200 countries agreeing to the Glasgow Climate Pact, along with a flurry of commitments and announcements from governments, companies, banks, NGOs and other organisations.

Henrik Johnsson, Co-Head of European Banking & Capital Markets, Claire Coustar, Global Head of ESG for our Fixed Income business, and Trisha Taneja, Head of ESG Advisory for our Origination and Advisory business, were among a number of delegates in Glasgow, talking to clients, development banks and other partners and stakeholders about green topics and how we can help speed up the pace of change – for instance by helping clients reduce their carbon emissions or by funding green projects such as solar and wind energy and energy-efficient real estate

In this podcast just released, Johnsson, Coustar and Taneja share their thoughts on how COP26 will impact the financial markets and the bank’s investment banking clients. Listen in to find out more about the role of banks in combatting climate change, the agreement on carbon market regulations, the 130 trillion US dollars figure announced by the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (which Deutsche Bank is a member of), the EU and China’s agreement on a common green taxonomy, the initiatives announced around mobilising capital for clean tech and developing countries, the UK’s introduction of mandatory climate disclosures and what to look out for in the year ahead.
