UNEP FI will host its third round of Regional Roundtables on Sustainable Finance in 2021 to provide an opportunity for members and actors in the sustainable finance community to come together locally to discuss the latest trends and innovations, and share good practice.

The Roundtables will bring together 3000+ UNEP FI members and sustainable finance practitioners for insights into advances in sustainable finance in 5 regions across the globe. The events will provide insight into key developments such as the benefits of sustainable finance integration in national economies, Principles for Responsible Banking and the reporting framework, positive impact finance for the Sustainable Development Goals, implementation progress of the Principles for Sustainable Insurance, climate related disclosures, sustainable infrastructure and cities, green bonds, innovation in sustainable finance, blue economy finance and ESG in underwriting.

Building on over two decades of successful Roundtables, these regional events are designed to create rich opportunities for UNEP FI members to connect with one another and to raise awareness of sustainable finance work in progress across banking, investment, and insurance.

• Showcase and learn about leading-edge sustainable finance practice and the future direction of the industry.
• Get connected with leaders in sustainable finance.
