CANCELLED Enabling Sustainability – The Role of Businesses and Governments, followed by AGM

This event is completed.

Registration is now closed.
Date Tuesday, March 24, 2020
Time 7:30 - 10:30
Speaker(s) Allan Polack, CEO, PFA
Arturo Bris, Professor of Finance, IMD and Director of IMD World Competitiveness Center
Kirstine Damkjær, CEO, EKF

Sustainability is one of the “grand buzz-words” of our time but underneath lie real issues such as CO2 emissions, bio-diversity, renewable energy transition, clean drinking water, human rights, gender diversity, good governance etc.

But, is sustainability at odds with returns, solid business performance and growth?

Pension funds and asset owners are key players in pushing businesses towards sustainability but of course also governments have a significant role to play. It all sounds great in theory, but it often comes down to what you personally are willing to change or even give up.

Join the event and you will discover a large asset owner’s view coupled with a finance professor’s perspective and enriched by the Danish EKF (EksportKreditFond), a key enabler for Danish companies.

We promise you a fun and thought-provoking event and you do by no means have to be a finance-executive to attend. Hope to see you there…
