Masterclass: Sustainable finance - Mobilising finance for sustainable growth

Sustainable finance is the cornerstone for creating a sustainable future and mitigating climate change. The transition to sustainable finance is today guided by the principle of "Doing Well by Doing Good", reinforced by the combined forces of market and politics. In this perspective, the Chamber of Commerce and its academic institution ISEC (Institut Supérieur de l'Economie) invite you to a conference on sustainable finance, which will focus on the topic: Mobilising Finance for Sustainable Growth in Europe. This conference will be held in the framework of "The Masterclass of the Chamber of Commerce" series.

The masterclass brings together the most prominent speakers from these two forces and offers an exclusive insight into the challenges and future of sustainable finance in Europe. Dr. Werner Hoyer, President of the European Investment Bank (EIB), will give the keynote presentation. He is one of the most influential partners of European leaders in government and business. His aim is, among other things, to foster Europe's economic strength and to steer the European economy towards sustainable development.
