Building Bridges Week

Investing in a Just Transition

The ILO’s Social Finance Programme and the Impact Investing Institute organized a session during the 2022 Building Bridges week, focussing on investing in a Just Transition.

Investors, businesses and policy-makers increasingly recognize the need for a Just Transition: combining climate action with social impact and community empowerment. This session showcased how financial institutions can adopt a Just Transition approach in their investments, based on best practices and insights from pioneering organizations.

Speakers: Brendan Curran (LSE Grantham Research Institute), Patricia Richter (the ILO's Social Finance Programme), Alessandra Nibbio (BlueOrchard Finance), Margharita Calderone (European Bank of Reconstruction and Development). Moderator: Jamie Broderick (Impact Investing Institute).
