Virtual Informal Drinks: EU Action Plan
2nd April 2020, 18:30 - 21:00
Coronavirus Update: GreenBuzz is going virtual! GreenBuzz is adapting to this new situation, that affects each and everyone of us. That is why we have decided to GO VIRTUAL! This event will be held virtually, using the online tool Zoom.
Together, let’s explore new ways of convening, networking, learning, socialising etc.! We are happy to talk to you in case you have concerns or questions!
The Paris Climate Agreement has had a profound impact on the financial services industry. The European Commission calls for a climate-neutral Europe by 2050 (an economy with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions) and has issued a new sustainable finance regulation, which will become effective as of July 2020.
This transition to a climate-neutral society is both an urgent challenge and an opportunity to build a better future for us all.
Considering the worldwide importance of the European financial centres, sustainable finance measures adopted by the EU will not only affect EU-based institutions, but also those incorporated outside the EU serving or seeking to serve European clients. This means that Swiss players also have to comply with these sustainable finance regulation standards, and they have the potential to lead the way with contributing towards achieving these sustainability goals.
Join GreenBuzz at this informal drinks to participate in the discussion with the GreenBuzz community, people from the financial industry and our special guest: Kelly Hess. She is Director of Project at Swiss Sustainable Finance and a sustainability specialist.
Join us from 18:30. We are looking forward to meeting new people and having inspiring conversations!
