UNEP FI deepened its engagement in Russia in December as it addressed representatives from the Russian banking sector, NGO community, government agencies, and international organizations at an international Moscow conference. “Investment in Sustainability. Role of the Financial Sector” was organized by VnescheconomBank (Bank for Development and Foreign Economic Affairs, VEB), one of the largest state-owned banks in Russia, which has been stepping up its sustainability understanding and practices since the launch of its first sustainability report in 2010. As a back-to-back event to the conference, UNEP FI, WWF Russia and VEB organized a training workshop on Environmental and Social Risk Analysis following the event. More information here.
