Goldman Sachs hosted the Sustainable Finance Innovation Forum, which convened ~350 corporates, investors, public sector representatives and non-profit organizations to discuss key themes shaping environmental markets and sustainability.
Leaders from each of our business divisions moderated the conversations, reflecting how sustainable finance has become core to how we serve our clients across each and every one of our businesses and an imperative of long-term sustainable economic growth.
The Forum was held with the backdrop of shifting U.S. policy, including the pull back from the Paris Climate Agreement, juxtaposed with strengthening market drivers. From the increasing investor focus on Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) integration to rapid ongoing technology innovation, the growing economic thesis around low carbon solutions and sustainable business models is reshaping industries and markets.
The Sustainable Finance Innovation Forum explored these themes over the course of a one day event. In this video and paper, we reflected on key takeaways from the Forum.
