High-level conference: A global approach to sustainable finance

Economic, Financial, and Banking Affairs
Date: Thursday, 21 March 2019

Venue: Charlemagne building - Alcide de Gasperi (GASP) room

The European Commission is organising its second high-level conference on sustainable finance with the objective of encouraging a global approach to sustainable finance.

Hosted by President Juncker and Vice-President Dombrovskis, this one-day event will gather Presidents of the European Institutions, Ministers from European and third countries, Governors of central banks, Chairs of international organisations as well as Chief Executive Officers of financial institutions and multi-national companies.

It will provide the opportunity to embrace a common vision and a strong commitment towards a coherent international financial system that supports channelling private capital towards sustainable projects. It will be an occasion to discuss how to best scale up sustainable finance globally and how to best achieve international coordination among governments, financial market participants and multi-national companies.

The programme is organised around the following three themes

  • Session 1: Financing sustainable global growth: the need for international coordination
  • Session 2: How to substantially deploy private capital towards sustainable investments?
  • Session 3: Digitalisation as part of the solution to mobilising sustainable finance across the globe

The full programme will be available soon here.

Key high-level speakers of last year’s conference included President Emmanuel MacronPresident Jean-Claude Juncker and Michael Bloomberg. For key quotes from the event please find the video with the conference highlights. For this year’s event, we are expecting the same of level of ambition.
