Symposium and Signing Event: Greening Financial Decision Making – Financing the Green Transition
4 April 2016, Frankfurt
In light of the 2016 G20 focus on Green Finance and the German G20 presidency in 2017, SEB and GIZ jointly organized a symposium on Greening Financial Decision Making – Financing the Green Transition. The objective of the event was to present new research, instruments and approaches to integrate environmental indicators in financial decision making in order to mobilize the capital urgently needed for green investments. Based on these presentations, we discussed with policy makers, finance professionals and international experts, what steps need to be taken to enable our financial system(s) to support the green transformation.
Furthermore, the event served to celebrate the official signing and start of the Strategic Alliance between SEB and GIZ on Green Bond Market Development in G20 Emerging Economies.
