Sustainable finance – for a greener and cleaner economy
Speakers: Cecilia Repinski, Innovation at SSFC and Executive Director at Stockholm Green Digital Finance, Marcus Svedberg, Senior Advisor at SSFC
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. Now governments and financial institutions must pick up the pace and ensure investments are delivering across the entire agenda set out by the Sustainable Development Goals. Sustainable finance is also essential to reach the climate goals set in the Paris Agreement as well the EU’s sustainable agenda.
