This workshop focused on the question, how the financial market can accompany and support the transformation towards a climate-neutral and sustainable economy.
Points of discussion
How do financial institutions assess the sustainability of companies with regard to decarbonisation and what influence does this have on their financing decisions? What information is needed and how should it be collected, reported and evaluated?
What does Sustainable Finance mean for the real economy in terms of its CSR strategy and reporting? How can blanket assessments by financial institutions based on sector characteristics or static carbon footprint be avoided? What are the resulting reporting requirements? How can companies use this as an opportunity, e.g. with regard to improved financing conditions?
