Coming soon: Progress or setback? Sustainable Finance and the current energy crisis

Join us at our PwC EMEA Sustainable Finance Event on 18 September 2023 starting at 4pm in Frankfurt am Main or online!

It will include multi-stakeholder panel discussions and workshops on the impact of the energy crisis on the sustainable transformation, on the increasing regulatory and societal demands on the financial sector with regard to sustainability and on the challenges and opportunities with regard to the implementation of the EU Sustainable Finance Strategy.

To contain global warming within the 1.5°C increase agreed at the 2015 Paris Agreements, the world has less than ten years to halve global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and until 2050 to reach net zero. At the same time, we currently see rising energy prices, inflation, increased supply chain risks and a protracted transition to renewable energies. Financial companies play an important role in the green and sustainable transition of the economy as credit granting institutions, asset managers, underwriters and risk managers. How can they best contribute to the transition navigating between increasingly complex regulatory and supervisory requirements, stakeholder expectations and a challenging economic backdrop?

Learn more, expand your network and discuss these questions with us at our international high-level conference "Progress or setback? Sustainable Finance and the current energy crisis". The event is aimed at C-Suite, reporting, risk and sustainability professionals of the EMEA financial sector.
