'Money makes the world go round' goes the age-old adage. Yet as scientific knowledge and public awareness of environmental issues has increased, governments and businesses alike have had to consider and adapt to the new kid on the block: climate change.
Implementing new regulations and adapting to the risks of climate change whilst trying to keep their customers engaged has tested the resilience of many businesses - especially those working in finance.
Yet what most still fail to see is the potential of the finance sector to act as a catalyst for the much-needed sustainability transformation. And most importantly: the massive impact the industry can have on the environment, the economy and us individuals.
This panel will therefore offer a deep dive into the role of the finance industry in guiding the sustainability transformation. In order to do so, the following three questions will be discussed:
- Why is the finance industry best suited to lead the sustainability transformation?
- How can the finance sector enable long-lasting environmental sustainability?
- What are the current execution challenges and how can they be overcome?
