VF to attend Sustainable Investment Forum on 2nd May

Organised by Climate Action in official partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), the Forum will bring together 350 finance stakeholders to Paris for its 7th annual edition. 

The Forum will offer a crucial platform for finance stakeholders to navigate the challenges and opportunities of the sustainable finance market in Europe.

Through discussions on portfolio alignment, risk mitigation, and impact investing, the event emphasises the importance of investing for a just and equitable transition to accelerate Europe’s economic transformation towards a more sustainable future.

In a time of economic uncertainty, inflationary pressures, geopolitical tensions, and regional fragmentation, it is essential for the financial sector to unlock the necessary financing to achieve a net zero, nature positive, and equitable economy in and for Europe. With regulatory initiatives like the EU Action Plan requiring investors to disclose their management of climate change risks, the collection of necessary data and metrics becomes crucial.

The impacts of physical risk exposure vary geographically and across portfolios, but their significance is undeniable. Recognising the role of European capital markets in the path to net zero, the Sustainable Investment Forum Europe serves as a catalyst for mobilising and allocating financing, complementing bank lending and public investments. With the rapid growth of green capital markets, the Forum aims to enhance underlying capital market structures and minimise the risks of national fragmentation and greenwashing.

Our Founder & CEO Jamie Burrows and our Chief Commercial Officer Mark Pickering look forward to forging some new relationships and having some meaningful discussions!
