Hi Global Risk Community member,

With the 2023 IPCC Report on Climate Change finding that human-induced global warming has caused unprecedented changes to the earth’s climate already, the time for investors to walk the talk on their ESG ambitions is now. European markets have never been better primed to capitalise on the huge growth opportunities a sustainable future of finance presents – with US$33.9tn of ESG-related AuM forecast by 2026, along with a US$93bn market for biodiversity products set to be thriving by 2030.

On the 6th – 7th of September in London, Reuters Events: ESG Investment Europe 2023 will unite world-leading institutional investors, financial service providers, regulators, standard setters, NGOs, and businesses to chart the course for a future of finance that is fair, future-proof, and grounded in good governance, the protection of essential natural capital, and net zero action in place of empty ambition.
