Responsible Investor is proud to present a new edition in our sustainable finance webinar series focused on the global implications of the European Commission’s Sustainable Finance Action Plan, with updates on developments in Asia and North America. Coming after the G7 meeting in Biarritz, France at the end of August, this webinar will unpack the implications of the sustainable finance regulatory agenda for global investors.
As the world grapples with populist politics, worsening economic inequality, and the prospect of climate breakdown, this is a crucial time for sustainable finance policy to reorient global capital markets. Against a backdrop of macroeconomic risks, this unique webinar will consider how sustainable finance policy on three continents could impact the banking and asset management industries.
With the European Commission leading action on new rules covering investment mandates, sustainability definitions and green finance fiscal policy tools, this webinar will reflect on ‘the HLEG-effect’. Speakers will consider how sustainable finance regulation coming out of Brussels and Beijing could impact investors in North America and other parts of the world.
