Join us at the Chamber on Thursday the 17 March for a fascinating event on Sustainable Finance Solutions and the role of banks as enabler of green transition: view of ING Bank. We are delighted to welcome Jan De Jaeck, the Sustainable Finance Business Lead for Belux & Nordics at ING, to discuss the variety of financial instruments available for businesses to finance the climate transition in alignment with their business activities.

This event, kindly sponsored by ING, forms part of the event series Enabling Sustainable Decisions, which aims to explain what sustainable investment and finance are, and how you as an individual or corporation can contribute to sustainable outcomes. During this second session, Jan De Jaeck will explain what ING is doing to support other businesses with the climate transition.

"At ING we believe sustainable business is better business. The transition towards a more sustainable economy can be supported through our balance sheet commitments by balancing and by sharing sector knowledge with focus on our clients' business profiles. Being sustainable is not just about reducing our own impact, it's in all the choices we make - as lender, as investor and through the services we offer our customers. That's why sustainability is inherent to our purpose of empowering people to stay a step ahead in life and in business."

This event is free for all members and non-members.

We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting BritCham event!
