22 June 2021 Swiss Sustainable Finance Annual Conference Online
 

The objective of the Swiss federal Council and finance industry associations is clear: Switzerland should become a leading centre for sustainable finance. Many market segments and various processes need to undergo changes to achieve this goal. But clearly, transparency is a key prerequisite for sustainable finance: only if both companies and investors provide more transparency on the sustainability of their actions, finance will gain the trust of their clients and society at large.

At its Annual Conference 2021, SSF will present its Reporting Recommendations on Portfolio ESG Transparency and kick-start a discussion on how to best provide the transparency needed to facilitate sustainable financial decisions. With key representatives of the financial market we will debate about strengths to build upon and challenges to address. We also look forward to a keynote speech by Magali Anderson, Chief Sustainability and Innovation Officer and Member of the Executive Board at LafargeHolcim Ltd.
