Finance for a Sustainable Future is the first initiative focused on improving sustainability skills among junior finance professionals in Europe. Since our establishment in 2017, we have been working towards this by:
- Giving students and young finance professionals a platform to discuss and learn about sustainability issues
- Connecting junior professionals to financial institutions with a strong focus on sustainability
- Building partnerships with international organisations, universities, research institutes and NGOs
- Engaging with finance firms to encourage them to include sustainability in their core training programs
The capital flows directed by the world’s largest asset managers and financial institutions help shape our societies. Without the support of these organisations, we cannot complete our journey towards a more sustainable economy.
The future of the financial industry will belong to companies that successfully integrate sustainability considerations into every stage of their investment process. Identifying and assessing sustainability challenges will become a core competency for the next generation of finance executives.
At Finance for a Sustainable Future, we believe that junior team members play a central role in the investment process. We give them the opportunity to learn the latest tools for assessing both social and environmental sustainability exposures of potential investments.
