OMFIF’s Sustainable Policy Institute is convening a global network of key policy-makers, regulators, public and private sector investors and ESG experts for a two-day annual symposium on 29-30 Sep 2021 to push the boundaries of the discussion on the role of monetary policy, regulation and disclosure as well as addressing key practical challenges in driving greener financial markets to achieve net zero. The symposium will provide crucial insights into COP26 preparations, its results and consequent actions. It will allow participants to have their voice heard to influence such an important agenda at this critical point of time and move the industry beyond words into action.

Hear from 30+ speakers, including Banca d’Italia, Bank of England, Deutsche Bundesbank, Banco Central do Brasil, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas, Bank for International Settlements, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, United Nations, European Investment Bank, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, International Finance Corporation and many more.

 Some key topics of the discussion will include:

  • Insights into COP26 and actions post COP26.
  • Policy, supervision, regulation and the role of central banks.
  • Scaling up sustainable capital markets and green assets. Implementing ESG in reserves and asset management.
  • Data governance, metrics and solutions.
  • Beyond climate. Developments in ESG technologies.
  • Green regulatory mandates and the G20.
  • Emerging markets role in fostering green finance.
  • Moving into action: EU, US and APAC approaches.

The symposium will be held on Swapcard, which allows attendees to:

  • Interact in live discussions by sending questions and participating in polls
  • Participate in forum discussions
  • Network with all other attendees and speakers by adding them as connections, sending private messages and arranging one-to-one meetings.
