As governments across the world continue to face the challenge of tackling Covid-19, the current crisis also presents an unprecedented opportunity to reboot global economies in a manner that builds more sustainable, inclusive and resilient societies, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

Such a global green recovery is an important focus of the UK Presidencies of the G7 and COP26, the international climate conference, in partnership with Italy who are also holding the G20 Presidency. Both Germany and the UK have taken domestic action to invest in a green recovery, but more still needs to be done at a global level.

How can the UK, Germany and other like-minded countries encourage and support other countries, for example big emitter emerging markets, to pursue a green recovery? How can we mobilise green investments at a global level? Which instruments are best to distribute mobilised capital efficiently? Which levers do we need to stimulate the renewables sector or support decarbonising industry? Join our virtual event, run jointly by the German Economic Institute (IW) and the British Embassy Berlin, to discuss these and other important questions around pathways for a global green recovery.
