Today marks the dawn of the Sustainable Finance Summit 2024, a pivotal gathering in the heart of Paris where delegates from across Europe convene to delve into the evolving landscape of transition finance.

With over 20 distinguished speakers and thought leaders, the summit promises to be a forum for robust discussions, networking opportunities, and strategic insights into navigating the complexities of sustainable finance.

Sarah Kemmitt, Secretariat Lead of the Net-Zero Banking Alliance, will deliver the keynote address. Her expertise will set the stage for a day packed with informative sessions, including addresses, fireside chats, and panel discussions.

The agenda is rich with pertinent topics, reflecting the pressing issues facing the finance industry today. Among them, “Transition plans: managing expectations and regulatory compliance” takes centre stage, exploring the delicate balance between ambitious transition goals and regulatory realities.

Another critical theme under scrutiny is “The elephant in the room: greenwashing,” where experts will dissect the challenges of discerning genuine sustainability efforts from mere token gestures. This discussion is vital for maintaining trust and integrity in sustainable finance practices.

Furthermore, with climate litigation on the rise, companies are navigating uncharted legal waters. The session on “Climate litigation is on the rise: what companies should be careful about” offers invaluable insights into mitigating legal risks and ensuring compliance in an increasingly litigious landscape.
