Roundtables

Targeted Engagement

The Roundtables are an intimate 60-minute meetings for 15 – 20 participants including a moderator alongside up to two speakers (roundtable technical facilitators) who are representatives from one exclusive commercial partner. Engage with our qualified audience of asset owners, investment managers and solution providers who will provide real time project intelligence on the most pressing issues facing them and the granular problems they are trying to solve.

The Roundtable partner/s will assume the role of host, confirming a maximum of 10 Roundtable participants. Additionally, 10 Forum qualified delegates can reserve their place by booking their seat on a first come, first serve basis and join the conversation. Our goal for the roundtables is to build closer, more meaningful relationships while deeply exploring essential topics with key stakeholders from outside and inside the Forum’s network.

Under Chatham House Rule, the Roundtables encourages an atmosphere of open discussion and exchange of ideas. The intimate conversations allow participants an opportunity to deep dive and uncover industry needs from a variety of perspectives and use that knowledge to achieve tangible outcomes to accelerate us meeting sustainable investment objectives for a net zero, nature positive and equitable global economy.
