Weaving networks
Dear all

This month, we are happy to announce that SSF has further strengthened its network in Europe as the newest member of Eurosif. With international developments speeding up and yet another set of sustainable finance measures passed by the EU, there is no better time to discuss the way forward in sustainable finance with our peers from all over Europe, and thus contribute to a mutual push forward for effective frameworks.

In the meantime, SSF is working hard to bring you the latest Swiss market insights: Don’t forget to sign up for our Market Study launch webinar on 7 June, when we will publish the Swiss Sustainable Investment Market Study 2021. We are also looking forward to our Members’ Assembly on the morning of 22 June, where SSF will elect its new president after our current president steps down from his full 6-year term.

Finally, our public Annual Conference on the afternoon of 22 June will give us the opportunity to bring together our broad network and discuss ways to provide transparency on the sustainability of products, ultimately helping finance gain the trust of clients and society at large.


Kind regards,
Kelly Hess
Director Projects, Swiss Sustainable Finance (SSF)
