The Melbourne gathering provided a great opportunity for bankers, insurers, asset managers and institutional investors from around the globe to discuss the latest ideas and challenges in the complex arena where finance, insurance, investment and capital markets meet with the sustainability agenda. UNEP FI’s vibrant global network of Regional Task Forces and partner organisations brought their informed perspective exploring regional and national developments. This year’s Global Roundtable in Melbourne was attended by more than 450 participants, among these more than 170 who have travelled from all over the world to Australia.
