What’s this webinar about?
To reach global environmental goals, we urgently need to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon, resource-efficient economy. This won’t be possible unless the financial sector realigns to consistently support sustainable development. To this end, a new Draft International Standard (DIS) called BS ISO 32210:2022 has been released on 14 January 2022 for comment. This document gives the financial sector practical guidance on how to integrate key sustainability principles into its operations. The webinar introduces the standard and solicits your comments on the draft.
Who should attend the webinar?
- Finance generally
- Investment and commercial banks
- Life assurance and pensions
- Funds and investments
What will participants gain?
- The chance to hear from the standard’s authors on why it was developed and what it does
- A stronger understanding of the principles of sustainable finance
- Ideas on how to implement the standard in practice
- The opportunity to put your questions on the draft standard to our experts
