We are pleased to invite you to our next Finance Watch webinar on the role that finance can play to help fight climate change: Why are politics putting all their hopes on finance to save the planet? Will the financial sector itself propose the right solutions and how do we prevent simple “greenwashing”? What regulations do we put in place to incentivise the markets to go truly “green”?
We must keep in mind that our unsustainable economic system – of which finance is a key component – has over the last past three decades contributed significantly to accelerating environmental degradation. For finance to become truly sustainable, we need to think differently about the whole economic system and put in place effective measures which regulate the economic environment in which the financial returns are created.
In this free webinar, our expert Nina Lazic will first describe why the current financial system is not able to pursue wider societal interests such as environmental protection and will also analyse the measures included in the European Commission’s Action Plan on Sustainable Finance. After her presentation, you will have the possibility to ask your questions in an interactive Q&A session.
