About this Event

IEEFA’s #SustainableFinance2024 will gather financial experts and practitioners to discuss evolving investment standards and frameworks to reduce transition risk and protect long-term value.

Session 1 – Sustainable fixed income labels: Credibility and impacts

Use of proceeds and sustainability-linked bonds and loans have become a significant source of capital, and are expected to grow given the large climate funding gap. However, not all these instruments show clear contributions to net-zero goals. How can investors, corporate issuers, and policymakers support the growth of credible and impactful labelled debt markets?

Session 2 – Universal ownership: Decarbonisation in a hostile engagement environment

Following COP26, the initial momentum behind GFANZ and initiatives like Climate Action 100+ brought hope that active ownership methods could be transformational for real-world decarbonisation. More recently, however, the industry is signalling that engagement is not living up to its early promise. How can universal owners evolve their investment management approaches in the face of growing challenges?
