Deloitte Sustainability Conference

Sustainable Finance - shaping the future of investment strategy

28 February 2019

The first Deloitte Sustainability conference was organized last 28 February at Namur Luxembourg.

During the past few months, climate, social and environmental concerns increased at all levels of our society. New generations are convinced that we are living a transition era towards a more sustainable and responsible future. In that transition phase, the financial industry has a growing role to play – future investment decisions will drive the society of tomorrow.

The objective of the conference was to highlight the ongoing developments regarding sustainable finance and to provide insights on how the market players – from different backgrounds - develop their investment strategies to address their investors’ needs while making a positive impact.
