Economist Impact’s 9th annual Sustainability Week

by | Feb 5, 2024

Economist Impact’s 9th annual Sustainability Week will explore business approaches to reach net zero and how profit can flourish alongside sustainability goals. With more than 200 speakers, 1200 in-person attendees and an online audience of over 5,000 attendees, the 9th annual Sustainability Week presents original insights and practical solutions for implementing organisations’ sustainability goals.

Join our CEO, Rhian-Mari Thomas for a virtual panel on 4th March to hear her view and CEO contribution, on getting businesses to net zero in a connected world. With just 100 companies contributing to 71% of global emissions, there is a significant challenge when it comes to reaching net zero. It can no longer be “business as usual’. How can bold leadership get companies to net zero and how are organisations preparing for the sweeping changes required?

Ingrid Holmes, Executive Director of the GFI, will be at the event in person on 6th March. She will be joining Mark Versey (Chief Executive, Aviva Investors), Adam Matthews (Chief Responsible Investment Officer, Church of England Pensions Board), and Vijay Vaitheeswaran (Global Energy and Climate Innovation Editor, The Economist) to discuss green investment opportunities. Green investment opportunities not only support environmental sustainability but also present attractive financial returns and risk profiles. As global efforts to combat climate change intensify, the demand for these opportunities is expected to grow, giving investors a wide range of choices to align their portfolios with net-zero and sustainable objectives. How can green projects be scaled for greater impact? How can companies show the financial viability and attractive risk-adjusted returns of their green projects?

We are excited to partner with Economist Impact again for this event. Further details can be found below – and if you would like to attend, please do use our discount code: GFI/MP15
