What’s this webinar about?
We now understand the huge contribution financial services can make to achieving global sustainability and climate targets. With that in mind, BSI is running a four-year programme to help accelerate the sector’s adoption of sustainable finance.
This webinar is part of that programme. It provides an overview of what we’re doing, and in particular look at the first two published sustainable finance standards on principles and responsible investment management respectively, and the third, which is in development, on sustainable investment funds.
What will participants learn?
Key stakeholders will learn how our standards can support them in the delivery of long-term sustainable returns for investors as well as in supporting sustainable development. Participants will also get a post-event copy of all presentations and a recording of the webinar.
