Reflecting on ReFi NYC

This year's edition of ReFi NYC was a great success, with over 600+ registrations and 40+ speakers throughout the day leading panel discussions, fireside chats and keynotes on the intersection of regenerative finance, natural capital and climate tech.

A big thanks to Arbol, Greenly, the Climate Collective, and BlockApps for sponsoring ReFi NYC this year.

If you weren’t there IRL, no worries! The sessions were recorded, and we will share videos in the coming weeks. Some videos from the event are already on dClimate’s YouTube channel. Until then, here are some photos from the event. 📸
