One Day Co-creation Workshop

4th December 2019 | 6 Alie Street, London

Make a difference. Kickstart change in your organization. Join our Co-creation Workshop.

Collaborate with change agents in sustainable finance within banks and fund managers, innovators among ESG tech start-ups, and leaders in technology and consulting, to exchange insights, share best practices, align priorities and advance the next steps inside your organization.

 

Purpose

Enabling positive change through innovation and collaboration

A programme of content, workshops and industry summit, designed to create actionable ESG strategies, and build the ecosystem of partnerships which will turn strategy into reality.

$30 trillion of capital is pledged to Sustainable Finance and supporting outcomes aligned to Sustainability and Impact goals, such as the UN SDGs.

This huge volume of capital is only trickling from behind a dam created by uncertainty from lack of data, taxonomies, schemas, reporting and products, robust enough to satisfy the risk register of financial institutions.The result is a lack of confidence about viable options for investing in sustainable initiatives.

Finextra Research and ResponsibleRisk will be running a thought-provoking series of editorial, research and experiential events to bring banking and technology ecosystems together, to collaborate on enabling this wave of change.
