Organised by Luxembourg for Finance, the Sustainable Finance Forum 2018 is to be held on 30 May from 0900 at the Cercle Cité in Luxembourg city centre.
This event will bring together the European sustainable finance community ranging from policy makers, practitioners, public stakeholders to corporate and retail investors.
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 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 and low-carbon economy.
Afternoon panels will focus on sustainable products available on the market and investors’ demand, sustainability standards and reporting, as well as impact investments.
