Sustainable Finance &
Climate Risk Event

Best practices in getting a grip on ESG data, reporting &

The IPCC report and the war in Ukraine increase the pressure on the Dutch financial sector. Investments in fossil fuels must be reduced and transition plans towards net-zero tightened up. At the same time supervisors raise questions on how financial institutions have to deal with ESG risks.

What does the Sustainable Finance & Climate Risk Event look like?

The future of the financial industry depends on its ability to adapt to a rapidly changing environment. The sustainability transition involves fundamental changes as well risks as opportunities to the sector. 

 

This event provides a unique platform for (institutional) investors, asset managers, banks, insurers, pension funds, distributors, and service providers to debate current and urgent affairs. At this annual get-together, you will meet 100+ key stakeholders and business peers.
