 Welcome by Richard Peers, founder of ResponsibleRisk and contributing editor, Finextra Research.

How are different international cities addressing sustainability issues and handling various levels of national regulation? Who takes the lead in confronting the challenges of climate change? What resources do cities have their disposal, and what innovations in risk technology, AI, and geospatial data are being used to enable the financiers to be able to analyse these adaptation, and mitigation plans?

How are financial organisations shifting their infrastructure to integrate sustainable goals? Where do banks and fintechs come into play in the global climate change movement? What is the position of bond issuers and investors in the transition?

10:45 - 11:00


How will guidelines on nature-related risk impact global finance? Where is the standardisation of reporting sustainable risk management and disclosure frameworks being enacted? What global sustainability challenges are these frameworks addressing for financial institutions?

What forms of green energy are available? What is the cost of generating clean energy and how can it be made affordable for the citizen via innovative finance and government incentives? How do new forms of data management such as the cloud impact energy consumption and help measure the carbon footprint of incumbents?

Lunch and networking

What impact will the vast volumes of asynchronous data that flows from shareholder disclosures, satellites and social media have on sustainable finance? How can our society infer meaning and make decisions based on this abundance of data? What issues could AI create?

Who are the potential winners and losers when cities change to meet sustainable finance goals and funds are raised to improve the environment of inhabitants? What mitigations should be considered? What is the role of behavioural science to inform this change?

14:45 - 15:15


How will the trillions of dollars needed to make real change be raised? How can financial markets deliver the investment and returns needed? What checks and balances need to be in place to ensure impact?
