About the Event

With only 8 years left to implement the Sustainable Development Agenda, signatories of the Dutch SDGI pledge will reflect on what has been achieved so far in the context of the Dutch investment value chain and how to tackle major barriers to deliver under the 2030 promise. The conversation will be complemented by the presentation of the outcomes of the study “Impact investments in illiquid markets” for Dutch pension funds made by VBDO in cooperation with Achmea and WNF.

The event is for SDGI Signatories, NAB’s members, VBDO’s members, Government, Dutch Central Bank, and organizations with a relevant interest. 

Please be informed that there are limited seats available.

16.00 “What have we achieved half-way through the 2016 SDGI Pledge?”

Investments   in sustainable development are growing and financing is available, however it  is still not channelled at the scale and   speed required to meet the SDGs by 2030. Are changes needed in the economic policies and financial systems? Is more cooperation between public   and private sector key to mitigate risks and catalyse action going forward? Has greater blending occurred and   is it still relevant? Where do we stand on the uptake of data standards? Has the regulatory environment become more enabling?   How is SDG investing perceived within retail institutions?
