Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE:ICE), a leading global provider of data, technology, and market infrastructure, and operator of the world’s most liquid environmental markets, announced that it will co-host the Climate & Capital Conference with Gitterman Asset Management and Accenture on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, at the NYSE, coinciding with New York City’s Climate Week.

This year’s event is centered around three interconnected themes: adaptation, innovation, and regulation (“AIR”).

Advances in environmental technologies and new ideas for improving the effectiveness of government policies are likely to shift the landscape still further.
The ICE Climate & Capital Conference will bring together industry leaders across the investment, business, and climate communities to discuss pertinent topics including strategies to align capital with climate commitments, approaches to engaging with corporate issuers on decarbonization strategies, and solutions to measure and manage climate risk and uncover opportunities.
“Capital markets will continue to play a critical role in financing decarbonization and the energy transition,” said Elizabeth King, President of Sustainable Finance & Chief Regulatory Officer, ICE. “We are excited to bring together industry leaders today at the second annual ICE Climate and Capital Conference to share the latest approaches to climate-related adaptation, innovation and regulation.”
