As part of the second United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA 2), UNEP FI will co-host a symposium on Mobilizing Resources for Sustainable Investment. This symposium, scheduled to take place on Wednesday May 25th, will showcase that the financial system both globally and nationally is at an exciting nexus for playing an active role in sustainable development and in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The first part of the symposium focuses on the efforts made so far in aligning the financial system towards sustainable development. The second part is designed to showcase initiatives by financial institutions to demonstrate the huge potential to work with the finance industry in mobilizing private financing for the SDGs. Speakers will include representatives from finance institutions, central banks, ministries of environment, stock exchanges, and industry associations.
