Event description

Description

Strategic Sustainability and Green Finance

This event focuses on strategic sustainability and green finance. We will be hearing from Barclays about their approach to sustainability and how green investment decisions are made and Capability North-East will take us through their approach to strategic sustainability and how this constitutes a smart business decision.


The session will explore the interdisciplinary nature and social environmental and economic benefits of sustainable finance and investment. Closer to home, we will be considering the sustainable investment decisions we make in our daily home and business lives and the different approaches we can take to to assess and implement these important decisions; giving us new strategies and perspectives.


As ever there will be the space and opportunity to network and share experiences with colleagues in the wider sustainability community. There will also be the opportunity for delegates to update the group on news and events.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Joining us as our speakers for this event are:
