“Connecting The Dots”
Setting the tone for further discussion and learning in 16 conference workshops, two topics have been singled out for the opening plenary - “Trends in Impact Investing - going mainstream?” and “Investing in Sustainable Urban Infrastructure”.
Over the course of two days, attendees are invited to choose from 16 sessions, divided into three ‘Tracks’: (A) ESG, (B) Impact Investing and (C) Sector Specials. For those seeking an introduction to global developments and state-of-the-art in the sector, a line of workshops on “Trends” runs through the program.
Around ESG integration and risk management, the program offers sessions on ESG materiality and metrics, ESG in fixed income markets, the role of shareholder activism, sustainable infrastructure investing (New York case study), and supply chain risks.
Building on the opening debate on Impact Investing’s role in mainstream finance, workshops cater to more specific questions for Impact Investors, fund managers or entrepreneurs: How to structure impact investing across asset classes, what to learn from deals gone south, sustainable investing in BoP-markets or the future of philanthropy investing.
Three sector specific sessions put the focus on the sustainability performance, opportunities and challenges around renewable energies, food production and health.
