The first ever UNEP FI Global Roundtable to take place in Africa was a great success with over 450 participants travelling from across the world to Cape Town where the city hosted its first “Green Week”. The event saw a mixture of bankers, insurers, investors, academia and government officials discuss the latest ideas and challenges in the sustainability agenda. Vibrant discussions were also had around the event’s theme topics, “Financing change, Changing finance”, in light of the financial crisis and with the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference, COP 15, taking place in Copenhagen in December 2009. UNEP FI’s global network of regional Task Forces and partner organizations attended in large numbers as over 200 of participants from abroad brought their informed perspectives exploring regional and national developments.
