17th Florence Rail Forum. Green Finance and Sustainability - Which Role for Railways?

Dates:
  • Fri 07 Dec 2018 08.00 - 17.00
  Add to Calendar 2018-12-07 8:00 2018-12-07 17:00 Europe/Paris 17th Florence Rail Forum. Green Finance and Sustainability - Which Role for Railways?

The 17th Florence Rail Forum will assess how railways can become a more effective tool in the fight against climate change and promote sustainability and decarbonisation. In particular, we will do so by looking at green financing and by exploring the various green financing mechanisms as potentially applicable to railways. More specifically, we will address the following four questions:


1. Sustainability objectives and green rail projects: how can rail deliver?
2. What is the role of taxonomy and which rail projects could be covered by sustainable financing mechanisms? What are the success stories?
3. How to assess economic and financial impact of green investments in rail? What are the primary (projects) and secondary (network) impacts, and what are the interests for investors?
4. What are the right technical screening criteria for green investments? How the certifying, monitoring and reporting activities have to be organized?
