Event description

Description

Following the launch of the European Commission's High Level Expert Group (HLEG) on Sustainable Finance interim report, Canadians working in finance in London and other European financial centres have decided to arrange an informal breakfast meeting on the morning of Thursday, 14th of September, to share ideas on how a Canadian Sustainable Finance working group might take shape.

We will be following up on the London meeting with a side-meeting during PRI in Person in Berlin at the end of September.

The Executive Summary of the HLEG interim report is accessible here as a reference point for our discussion on the Canadian context:
