Meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the climate change ambitions of the Paris Agreement means that an unprecedented level of capital needs to be mobilised over the coming years. It requires a concerted effort not only by governments, but also substantially by the private sector in order to scale up investments. As a result, sustainable finance has gained momentum as a new asset class with a long-term social, environmental, and economic benefit.
The Sustainable Finance Forum Luxembourg brings together the European sustainable finance community: policy makers, practitioners, public stakeholders and corporate and retail investors on 30 May 2018.
The high-level conference, featuring business and political leaders, will address key regulatory and market challenges, the asset management industry’s role in sustainable investment, as well as how capital markets can contribute to a sustainable low-carbon economy.
Workshops in the afternoon will focus on sustainable products available on the market and investors’ demand, as well as reporting and data accessibility.
The full programme and speakers will be announced soon. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact us.
