Sustainable finance and SDG investing is growing around the world in developed and developing countries. Mainstream investors have increased their efforts in mitigating environmental, social, and governance risks as well as proactively investing for impact. However, to assess the effectiveness of sustainable finance, a clear definition and consensus on how to measure the “impact’’ of investments is imperative.

Join the online conversation between Bertrand Gacon and Karen E. Wilson, who will answer the following questions:

  • What are the recommendations for delivering on the “impact imperative” funding of sustainable development?
     

  • What are some of the initiatives and approaches for impact measurement and management that are getting some traction?
