UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is hosting its 16th Global Roundtable virtually on 13–14 October 2020, in collaboration with Responsible Investor. UNEP FI’s biennial Global Roundtable (GRT) is a major global agenda-setting event on sustainable finance. Held under the theme of “Financing a Resilient Future”, the GRT will bring together decision-makers, experts and thought leaders on a virtual event platform, and help shape approaches to integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and accelerating sustainable banking, insurance and investment.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, UNEP FI has made the decision to host the GRT2020 virtually. The GRT2020 virtual event platform will allow space for keynotes, high-level dialogues, panels, workshops, networking and much more! More information to be announced soon.
The event in 2020 will convene over 2000 finance professionals and highlight the development of financial products with positive impacts, explore emerging approaches to financing the Sustainable Development Goals, provide invaluable insight into alignment with the Paris Agreement, innovation, emerging guidance and good practice, and identify trends and issues on the horizon at a global level to explore the finance sectors’ responses to science, policy and business developments in areas such as climate change, biodiversity, circularity and ocean health.
UNEP FI’s 15th Global Roundtable was held in Paris from 26–28 November 2018, welcomed more than 1000 delegates and 150 speakers and saw the launches of major initiatives that will help accelerate the financing of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agenda.
