30.11. ESG financial forum (online stream)

How ESG increases financial performance and stimulates investments.

Mazars, ArzingerGlobal Compact and National Bank of Ukraine joined ESG financial forum online live stream. During the event, speakers explained how ESG’s non-financial indicators and sustainability influence financial decisions.

We involved leaders who are considering the importance and are already implementing ESG in the company's strategy. The forum was especially relevant for CEO and CFO of banks and institutions, which provided financing to business based on financial and non-financial indicators.

During two-hour discussion, participants gained a focused knowledge which usually takes weeks to obtain.

The forum involved representatives of the EBRD, leading Ukrainian banks, as well as speakers from Poland and Slovakia.
