The UfM Secretary General, Nasser Kamel, held an online meeting with Financial Centres for Sustainability (FC4S), a collective of financial centres working to accelerate the expansion of sustainable finance by enabling financial centres to exchange experience, drive convergence, and act on shared priorities, with the aim of contributing to the delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement. Barcelona Centre Financer Europeu and Casablanca Finance City, both members of FC4S participated at the meeting, which was facilitated by Fundación Tanja.
They discussed potential future cooperation between the UfM and FC4S with the aim of helping to create green financial centres in the region and to build the capacities of financial institutions in member states in that regard, in line with the Paris Agreement and in view of the upcoming UfM Ministerial Conference on Environment and Climate Action.
