Organization: Graduate Institute with PeaceNexus Foundation
Location: Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Geneva
Description: The 2015 launch of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) made clear that the global community relies heavily on the private sector to solve some of the most urgent problems faced by the world. This event will explore how to leverage trends in sustainable investment to better align them with the SDGs–SDG 16 in particular. It will provide practical insights from sustainable investment experts and company representatives on how to mobilise investors and the corporate sector to contribute to SDG 16, and will highlight Geneva-based investment initiatives that link the worlds of finance and peacebuilding, notably, the newly established Cadmos Peace Investment fund.
