WASHINGTON, (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury secretary Janet Yellen will call on financial institutions to have a greater sense of urgency about investing in net zero economy during meetings with Bank of America’s (NYSE:) chief executive officer and others.

John Morton was a former adviser to private equity and Treasury’s first climate counselor. He told reporters that Yellen will explain the new U.S. policies aimed toward moving towards a cleaner energy economy and help to understand how to speed up work from the private sector.

Morton said that the Secretary would both acknowledge the commitments made, and instill a sense of urgency before the meeting at the United Nations Conference on Climate.

To fund the gap between $2 trillion and $3 trillion per year, he said that mobilizing capital from the private sector was essential to finance a global net zero economy. He also added billions of dollars pledged by governments.
