About the Event
Sustainable finance has seen a strong increase in the past years, and demand from the investor side will grow even faster in the future. The challenge to find convincing sustainable companies to be invested in is growing. Responsible and sustainable businesses are key for the future of our societies. Since the financial sector is a key driver for economic development, it is crucial to get all financial actors involved in active reflection and action on business sustainability. Antonio Hautle will give an overview, and explain how the UN Global Compact and other actors in the field of economic, social, and ecologic sustainability like WBCSD, B-Corp, öbu, etc; support and push companies on their sustainability journey. The UN Global Compact Ten Principles, the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), and the Agenda 2030 with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) offer a helpful framework for the financial sector. To make this meeting as interactive as possible, we kindly ask you to formulate one or two key questions and/or reflections on:
- What do I expect from a sustainable and responsible business?
- Where do I see the role of the financial sector? Should sustainability be part of its value proposition to clients and personnel? Why and how?
