World leaders are in France at the One Planet summit with the objective of mobilizing finance to fund projects that can reduce climate-changing pollution. Companies, banks, investors, and countries will announce new initiatives to help fund the costly transition to a carbon-free future. Only real commitments funded by real money will be discussed.
