How susatinable development meets profitability?
Monday, 08 April 2019 · 18:30h - 20:00h (Europe/Madrid)
Financial investments move much of the capital that circulates throughout the planet, most of which pursue purely economic gains. However, there is a growing demand for investments that prioritize projects that respect environmental, social and good governance criteria. Sustainable financing prioritizes the minimization of pressure on natural systems, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the use of highly efficient technology in the use of natural resources. In addition, the projects incorporate risk monitoring and transparency mechanisms on the same financial system and the need for financial actors to adopt good governance measures to avoid these risks.
In this conference we will talk about which criteria incorporate the funds with environmental and social criteria. Who sets these criteria? How do the markets accept the introduction of these new criteria? How to establish suprastate financial criteria?
On this occasion, the speaker will be Stephen Nolan, Managing Director of the UN Environment Financial Centers for Sustainability Network
The conference will be chaired by Humberto Llavador, professor of economy of the University Pompeu Fabra.
The conference will be in English and there will be simultaneous translation into Catalan.
