Forum Background

The ESG / SRI Market grows at a stable pace the last years and it is becoming gradually a trend. The ESG Responsible Investments & Green Finance Forum in Berlin connects since 3 years in sequence senior managers from Investment & Asset Management Industry, Banking, Finance, Corporate World, Associations & Policy and it is a high level international communication and dialogue platform for the ESG / SRI Investments and Green Finance topics. In the upcoming forum on 26.9.2018, among others, there will be a high level business dialogue on the actual ESG / SRI Market Trends and Investment Strategies, on the new Green Finance Initiatives such as the new EU Green Finance Package, the TCFD and other Initiatives and Trends as well as the integration of ESG Metrics not only in the Investors & Asset Management Firms Strategies but also in the Corporations’ Strategy. The Forum will try also to give an answer to the main question. Is ESG going to turn from Niche to Mainstream?
