As one of the last ferries leaves the island of Gotland this Friday, the people of Visby are still busy cleaning up their streets, packing away meeting tents and folding tables and chairs. Almedalen week, Sweden’s most important political event, has come to an end. Sustainable finance was one of the hot topics discussed in several seminars during the course of Almedalen week. The financial sector must be part of making life on this planet sustainable. It already plays a role in channelling investments into green technologies, energy-efficient buildings, and climate-friendly transport.
