4-5 May, 2005 | Buenos Aires, Argentina Hosted by ABN AMRO Argentina, the second LATF workshop on environmental and social credit risk brought together 25 participants from a range of Argentinean and international banks. With case studies, group exercises and role plays, the trainers from ABN AMRO and Fundación Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (FARN) inspired lively discussions about different approaches to environmental and social risk. In the closing session, workshop participants put forth a number of proposed steps to further promote the consideration of these risks in the Argentinean financial sector. These recommendations were discussed in an executive breakfast the following day, in which the participating banks were joined by representatives from government and civil society. Lively discussions ensued regarding follow-up initiatives within the financial sector, potential collaboration with government agencies and business associations. The LATF secretariat and ABN AMRO will follow up with workshop participants to develop further steps and to discuss the formation of a an Argentinean sectoral initiative. The LATF would like to thank ABN AMRO, FARN and SRInvest Argentina for their tremendous support in the realization of the event.
