Title:Sustainable Investment Forum
Organizers: Climate Action in partnership with UNEP FI
Description: Europe, in particular the EU, can pave the way to a sustainable recovery beyond COVID-19. Europe’s regulatory and societal climates have encouraged and accelerated coherent sustainable investment growth strategies for the EU. They continue to represent a unique opportunity for governments to reshape a sustainable future world, and for private and institutional investors to access attractive responsible ESG investment propositions to support ESG and global sustainable finance.
Due to the volatile nature of the COVID-19 crisis, there is an urgent need to identify and model risks that companies did not consider prior to the pandemic, to encourage private and institutional investors to invest in more purposeful projects using enhanced de-risking mechanisms offered by increased EU-backed guarantees. With a mandate for embedding environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks in their investment strategies, many are expecting the Biden administration will trigger growth in demand in ESG investing. The Forum will discuss what are the implications of this growth for Europe, and will this see a decisive move towards a common approach to cross border carbon taxes in Europe and North America.
