About Sustainable Investment Forum North America 2021

Aligning cross border initiatives to enhance ESG and responsible investing

Returning for its 6th edition in September, Climate Action’s Sustainable Investment Forum North America 2021, in official partnership with UNEP Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), will be a fully virtual event.

The four-part virtual forum will welcome a large online interactive audience of asset owners and managers, banks, development institutions, policymakers, think tanks and NGOs looking to drive meaningful change in sustainable finance during virtual Climate Week NYC. A North American focused month dedicated to sustainable investment will open up the forum to a wider global audience.

As the world reacts to the new world order in the midst of COVID-19, green finance and sustainable ESG practices have a pivotal role to play in global financial markets. Our virtual forum will provide an online environment to grow and continue to engage with the sustainable finance community in these unprecedented times.

The virtual edition of the Forum will be THE online meeting place for the sustainable finance community during Climate Week New York.

As Part of

The Sustainable Investment Forum North America 2021 forms part of Climate Action’s Roadmap to COP26, designed to help organisations engage with stakeholders and targeted audience groups and maintain momentum on climate action in the lead up to COP26 in Glasgow. The Roadmap includes numerous hybrid and virtual events focused on key industry pathways including hydrogen, industry, transport, energy and cities.

“The people who are attending the Forum are a wide range of both asset owners and asset managers – and when we’re looking to move the agenda forward in terms of further and more extensive sustainable investment on a global basis, these are the people who are the decision-makers.”

Andrew Steel, Managing Director, Global Head of Sustainable Finance, Fitch Ratings

“We’ve been coming to [the Sustainable Investment Forum North America] for multiple years now. We think that within the North American market it’s one of the best, if not the best, bringing together of the minds, both from the asset owner and asset management perspective, but then also data rating agencies, regulators, and many of the city and state governments as well. So the ability to bring the investment ecosystem together is invaluable.”

Todd Arthur Bridges, Head of ESG Research, State Street Global Advisors

“An enjoyable well organized discussion”

Elliott Harris, UN Assistant Secretary-General, Chief Economist, UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN-DESA)
