Sustainable Finance Forum 2023

Sustainable finance has moved from niche to mainstream and now finds itself in a new period of development. One that, so far, has been characterised by growing scrutiny against greenwashing, the speed of uptake and transition, unfulfilled sustainability pledges, and more. As calls for action grow, many feel we are slipping backwards in the short-term. How then can financial services take the next steps and turn commitment into implementation?

Join digitally Luxembourg for Finance’s 6th annual Sustainable Finance Forum on 29 and 30 March 2023 from 10:00 to 12:00, where leading actors in the sustainable finance sector will discuss the next steps in the sustainable finance journey.

  • John Kerry, United States Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, will highlight the necessity of working together in order to succeed in the fight against climate change.
  • H.E. Yuriko Backes, Luxembourg’s Finance Minister, will provide us with details on financing a sustainable future.
  • William Wright, Founder & Managing Director of New Financial, presents the results of a new study measuring how embedded sustainable finance has become.
  • Ugo Bassi, Director of Financial Markets at FISMA, takes stock of the Action Plan five years on, and Julie Becker, CEO of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange, touches on the knowledge gap.

The first day of the conference will explore the evolution of sustainable finance, how embedded it has become within finance in general, and the products journey to end investor. Day two will see us delve into some challenges faced and how finance can act as a force for good relating to human rights.
