We will talk about

Is finance the cause of disaster or the most powerful tool to save the planet?  

Used correctly, finance can be at the heart of the way we address many of the world's problems, ranging from climate change to the eradication of poverty to building much needed infrastructure. How to turn our financial system from a poor master to a great servant? Innovations in financial tools and approaches are already happening around the world. The panel will look how the ESG criteria are shifting towards the UN SDGs, how new relevant data allow the investors to select really positive projects, and the role intelligent regulation can play in channeling the power of finance in a positive direction. Impact investing is getting bigger and bigger, a ray of hope for a more sustainable future.
