Join UNEP FI virtually this October for its 17th Global Roundtable (GRT), a major global agenda-setting event on sustainable finance. Held under the theme of “Transforming Finance, Accelerating Change”, this online event will bring together decision-makers, experts and thought leaders on a virtual event platform to help shape approaches to integrating sustainability across the banking, insurance and investment industries

UNEP FI’s Global Roundtable consistently serves as a pivotal event in finance industry action, providing attendees an opportunity to collaborate with peers, demonstrate leadership, and learn from global financial leaders; the event in 2020 convened over 4500 finance professionals, corporates, policymakers, scientists, and civil society representatives. This year’s Global Roundtable, held in partnership with Climate Action, will provide a platform for systemic impact and address critical emerging topics, including portfolio alignment, adaptation, impact management and connectivity between the finance sector and the real economy.
