Green Finance Resized

Event details

We are delighted to welcome top journalists, academics, sector specialists as well as familiar faces from Evelyn Partners to debunk some of the jargon surrounding responsible investment and explore how taking steps towards the transition to net zero can be good for business.

We are looking forward to hearing from two of the most engaging speakers in responsible investment today. Stuart Kirk, the regular FT columnist with his weekly Saturday article is very popular for his pragmatism and clarity of thought. Sam Fankhauser, Professor of Climate Economics and Policy at the University of Oxford, is both positive and informative on ways to achieve net zero. We will also host a panel discussion with some of the most innovative minds address Net Zero in today’s society: Simon Heppner, Roland Brown and Emma Loder-Symonds.

Throughout the conference we invite your questions and we hope you can join us for what promises to be an interesting and informative day.
