Sustainable Finance & Climate Risk Event
Best practices in getting to grips with ESG data, reporting & climate risk management
What is your focus area when meeting these ESG requirements? Large companies need to report their taxonomy alignment along with information that helps investors assess their ESG performance. How can we ensure that our investments generate the expected environmental and social benefits? And how do you acquire the correct ESG data among available sources? These aversions and more will be covered during the Dutch Sustainable Finance & Climate Risk Event on the 8th of November. The event provides a unique platform for the sustainable finance sector.
