Sustainability and Banking, Copenhagen


29 May, 12:30

PwC Copenhagen, Strandvejen 44, 2900 Hellerup, Denmark


About the event

The United Nations Principles for Responsible Banking were released last year with the aim to help any bank – whatever its starting point – to align its business strategy with society’s goals. This means that banks would avoid in supporting companies involved in abuses of human rights, environmental damage and any other activities that could damage Planet Earth. It’s a nice idea, but is it practical?


We've invited some of the leading companies and individuals supporting responsible banking to join us to see, as well as an open discussion about how we could support and progress this ideal.
