Sustainable Finance Week - Tuesday
08 June 2021 - St Pierre Park Hotel, Guernsey
Mobilising private capital for the sustainable agenda
Sustainable Finance Week is presented in association with the UN Financial Centres for Sustainability (FC4S) Network.
In association with the UN’s Finance Centres for Sustainability, Guernsey Green Finance will be hosting its annual Sustainable Finance Week in June. A fixture in the private wealth and sustainable finance space, the event will be bringing together global policy makers, opinion formers and professionals from across private wealth and sustainable finance to discuss private capital financing sustainability against the backdrop of CoP 26 later in 2021.
This hybrid event will mix a physical conference here in Guernsey with live broadcasts and panels from the financial and private wealth centres of London, New York, Zurich and Geneva. 2020’s event brought together over a thousand participants from 50 countries, with speakers from numerous leading global sustainable finance organisations including the United Nations; TheCityUK; the UK’s Green Finance Institute; the BVCA; the Hong Kong Green Finance Association; and the Swiss Sustainable Finance Institute. 2021’s line up of speakers will be published shortly.
Private capital and government funding are both crucial for the future of climate finance, with a need for public policy to engage industries with net zero ambitions and targets. Day one will focus on the key drivers in public policy, future regulations around sustainability, and in relation to sustainable portfolios, the decision-making process and impact of reporting and measurement requirements.
Our US, UK and Guernsey panels will look at how the private funds sector, and in particular the private equity industry might evolve its model to mobilise increasing volumes of capital towards sustainable investments.
Guernsey Green Finance’s objective is to leverage Guernsey’s expertise, particularly in administering private wealth, to help lead in routing private capital and private equity to climate finance. Our approach has been to develop knowledge, services, tools and products to connect owners of significant private wealth, and their advisers and investment managers, to the climate change agenda.
