4.30pm - 5.30pmREGISTER HERE
The use of sustainable finance has grown considerably in recent years but can a successful transition to a more viable economic model be delivered through sustainable finance alone?
Considerable research has been carried out to suggest solutions that would facilitate the scale of the change required. Some of the proposed solutions include a timely and efficient shift of debt to capital markets from banks’ balance sheets or the development of sustainable private equity and venture capital.
Trowers & Hamlins and ESG Nexus invite you to a panel discussion to explore the approaches financial institutions are taking to scale up sustainable finance.
The session will cover:
- What approaches do we see in the financial sector and how are they evolving?
- How do we combat the threat that environmental, social and governance risks pose to economic and financial stability?
- With over 1500 separate pieces of regulation what is the role of regulation in scaling up sustainable finance?
- How are pension trustees duties changing and how will these changes affect the scaling up of sustainable finance?
