UK Launch of Connecting Finance and Natural Capital: A Supplement to the Natural Capital Protocol

October 12, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am

Beyond ESG: Information to Make Better Decisions

Last year the Financial Times reported that ‘the outperformance of ESG strategies is beyond doubt’. In the same year NOAA estimated that insured losses in the US due to national disasters totalled $306 Billion- an increase of 1185% on the previous annual record.

This event will explore how the Finance Sector Supplement can help you to assess these risks and identify opportunities in your financial decision-making.

Join us in London for the chance to hear a practical case study application from eftec, followed by a panel discussion where leaders in this space will discuss the benefits of application, the challenges that remain and the future direction of the finance sector.
