Finance Directors Network (South West) on Sustainable Finance

Only businesses - in collaboration with government - can provide the scope of innovation and investment needed to achieve net zero. Decarbonisation is the investment imperative for our generation and done right can help to raise productivity and create jobs across all corners of the UK and globally.

The transition to a sustainable economy offers multiple prizes to businesses that recognise the need for change early in the process, and sustainable finance will be a fundamental tool to unlocking those opportunities. The push for sustainability means that businesses are increasingly required to understand how to monitor and report on their sustainability performance and this information is becoming fundamental for investors. Join this session to find out about sustainable finance, what it means for your business and where you can find it – and whether it makes business sense for you.

The session will be chaired by Ben Rhodes (Director - South West, CBI), with Julia Jasinska (Senior Policy Advisor – Sustainable Finance, CBI), joining as a subject matter expert.

Some questions to consider:

  • Have you started your sustainability journey and are you reporting on your progress?
  • Do you find it challenging to follow the regulatory environment and standards in the area of ESG?
  • Are you actively searching for finance to finance the transition of your business or invest in sustainable projects?
  • What challenges are you facing?

You will particularly benefit from this event if you are a: 

  • Finance Director
  • Chief Financial Officer
  • Senior leader working in the finance function.

Please note this event is now VIRTUAL, not in-person.
