About this virtual summit

The Swiss Impact Investment Association organizes an annual Impact Summit where Financial Professionals, Policy Makers, Investors, Impact Start-Ups and Representatives of Academia come together to shape society’s future.

With the pandemic, climate change and societal turmoil, humanity faces a global existential crisis. However, there is massive potential for change, when the knowledge, skills and capacities of governments, industry, broader society and finance, are combined.

As we only have one planet where humanity can prosper and aspire towards a better future, finance will play a crucial role in implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

During this Summit, we want to bring together people within the impact investment ecosystem, to discuss the topics of

Planet, Humanity and Finance.

Internationally renowned speakers will join guests from the local financial sector to share experiences around successful impact investment, sustainable entrepreneurship and innovation within the finance sector.

 

“Finance will be green, or it won’t exist in the future” Bruno Le Maire, Finance Minister of France
