Breakthroughs in Sustainable Investing and Finance

06 Feb Breakthroughs in Sustainable Investing and Finance

Advancing sustainable development across emerging markets will require substantial capital. The UN estimates, for instance, that up to US$7 trillion in annual investment will be needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. To achieve funding at this scale will require significant flows of private capital in addition to government resources. The policy frameworks to attract such capital have just begun to emerge. Principles for green bonds exist but are not fully operational. Various competing standards for Environmental/Social/Governance (ESG) reporting result in a lack of clarity on what should be reported and methodologically inconsistent data that makes benchmarking difficult. And investors often wonder whether corporate sustainability leadership translates into financial success.

A text summary of the event is now available on our website.

More photos from the session are on our Facebook page.


 

SIIA is proud to invite Professor Daniel Esty, Director of the Centre for Environmental Law and Policy at Yale University, to discuss how to develop the most effective policy frameworks that can attract substantial private capital in support of a more sustainable future. He will also introduce the Yale Initiative on Sustainable Finance, a new platform bringing together market participants, leading scholars, and non-profit organisations to create innovative solutions for sustainable finance.

Professor Esty holds faculty appointments at Yale’s Environment and Law Schools as well as the Yale School of Management. He is the author of the prizewinning book, Green to Gold: How Smart Companies Use Environmental Strategy to Innovate, Create Value, and Build Competitive Advantage.


Speaker: 

Prof. Dan Esty, Hillhouse Professor of Environmental Law and Policy, School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and Clinical Professor of Environmental Law & Policy, Yale Law School
