EACB supports the Webinar organised by Hanken School of Economics, Finance Finland, Finance Denmark and Finance Norway on ESG data

The European Association of Co-operative Banks (EACB) is proud to be a supporting partner of this Webinar co-organised by Hanken School of Economics, Finance Finland, Finance Denmark and Finance Norway. This event will take place on 11th June 2020, 10–11.45 CEST.

Following the awareness of environmental limits to human actions, and EU’s sustainable finance developments, attention is now directed to the need for reliable and comparable ESG data as the key to driving forward the sustainable transition. This need is apparent in the financial sector, but also of key importance to other stakeholders in the society, such as corporates, policymakers and the academic community.

MEP Sirpa Pietikäinen hosts a webinar with Hanken School of Economics, Finance Finland, Finance Denmark and Finance Norway to discuss the current availability of ESG data and ideas to make it more accessible and usable for e.g. financers, policy makers, researchers and many more.

The keynote speaker is Mr Martin Spolc, Head of Unit DG FISMA, European Commission.

Join them for this webinar on Thursday 11th June. The webinar can accommodate the first 300 registrants.
