Finance for a Sustainable Future is looking for the finance industry’s future leaders! Learn about sustainable finance, ESG and impact investing. Join us for three days of networking and lectures by international experts on 29-31 August 2018 in Prague, Czech Republic.

The future of the financial industry will belong to companies that successfully integrate sustainability considerations into every stage of their investment process. Identifying and assessing sustainability challenges will become a core competency for the next generation of finance executives.
