Event description

Description

UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is bringing the Regional Roundtable for Sustainable Finance in Latin America and the Caribbean to Brazil to explore trends and showcase good practice on sustainable finance from across the region and beyond. The programme will highlight leadership and innovation in sustainable banking, insurance and investment and provide insight into integrating sustainability into strategic decision-making and market practice.

The two-day event, co-organised with the Brazilian Federation of Banks (FEBRABAN), will feature a mix of high-level plenaries and keynotes from public and private sector leaders in sustainable finance, as well as technical sessions covering approaches to sustainability in investment, insurance and banking. The roundtable will enable participants to network with policy makers, regulators and peers from across the finance industry in Latin America and the Caribbean as well to exchange ideas and experiences to help advance sustainable finance in the region.

Agenda-setting discussions will cover leadership initiatives such as the Principles for Responsible Banking to be launched in September, impact-based approaches to financing for the UN Sustainable Development Goals, sustainable ocean finance, guidance for the insurance industry on protecting UNESCO World Heritage Sites; and approaches to aligning portfolios with the Paris Agreement and understanding risks and opportunities linked to the financial impacts of the climate emergency and low-carbon transition.
