We are excited to announce a dynamic online panel event to discuss the renewed sustainable finance strategy.

This latest sustainable finance strategy plan will layout the programme for 2021-2024. The desire of the European Union is for this finance to support economic growth whilst, at the same time, reducing pressures on the environment.

This strategy is vital for the EU plans to transition into a low-carbon and more sustainable economy, and ties into UN 2030 sustainable development goals.

Areas such as green investments, data availability, and sustainable corporate governance are likely to be discussed. After the discussion, there will be a Q&A event where you can put your questions to our panel.

We are looking forward to welcoming Victor van Hoorn, and Sirpa Pietikäinen MEP to the Chamber to discuss this topic.
