in partnership with United Nations Environmental Programme Finance Initiative
By invitation only
16 October 2014
14:00 - 17:00 Europe/Zurich
The session “In the Driver’s Seat - Emerging Markets and Sustainable Finance” provides a close-up on country-owned initiatives in emerging markets that continuously seek to integrate sustainability issues directly into their financial institutions’ operations. Such country initiatives include Brazil’s recent Central Bank Regulation 4.237, Nigeria's ‘Sustainable Banking Principles’, Colombia’s ‘Green Protocol’, and, soon, Turkey’s ‘Sustainability Guidelines for the Banking Sector’. The session offers a space for each participating country to present their experience and journey in sustainable finance, and to illustrate how that helped reposition their status regionally and internationally concerning environmental and social concerns.
