Principles for Sustainable Insurance (PSI) Market Event Europe

The UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) and Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) are joining forces for three days of insight into advances in sustainable finance to 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.

UNEP FI will hold its 2nd Regional Roundtable for Europe in Luxembourg on 28-29 November 2019, followed by the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF), the world’s largest knowledge-led platform on sustainable land use, on 30 November 2019.
