Law & Business Downtown Seminar: Sustainable Finance: Pandora’s Box?

Law & Business Downtown Seminar: Sustainable Finance: Pandora’s Box?

Speaker: Jan Job (JJ) de Vries Robbé, Dutch Development Bank FMO

 

Someone new to the financial markets might be forgiven to think that Sustainable Finance has always been a key part of it. These days every self-respecting bank, financial institution and fund manager has a dedicated department for it. Summits and conferences on the topic abound. During this seminar, let’s take a step back and survey achievements but also take a critical perspective at some of the challenges and risks for the market. You may find the contents of the box are different to what you might expect.
