About the Event

During our session, Desiree will share her knowledge and experience of more than 20 years in Sustainable Finance and Global Markets, she will focus on the following three topics:


Are firms living their sustainability statements? Are they living up to their promises with regards to climate action and social justice? Are companies delivering on their marketing statement?

Investing & Sustainable Finance

Is the needle moving? Are we walking the temperature pathway? Have we made a positive impact with the investments we were looking for?

Speak up culture

We live in a time of “speak-up culture” and an “open-door policy” where employees are encouraged to approach management with concerns. Still, speaking up is not acceptable by most cooperations and is being punished. What are the implications for our society?
