From sustainable to impact finance

Intesa Sanpaolo Banking Group presents a new event about impact finance at Innovation House


Hybrid event | Innovation House, InterContinental Dubai Marina, Dubai, and online | 15:30 (UAE TIME ZONE) - 12:30 (CET TIME ZONE)

The event

Sustainable Finance, Impact Finance and Circular Economy can offer great opportunities for Corporates to deliver on climate commitments and other ESG (Environmental, social and corporate governance) objectives. The adoption of these practices has the potential to reduce risk and increase resilience through business model diversification, decoupling economic growth from resource use and environmental impact. Moreover, technology can play a key-role to manage this change. Join Intesa Sanpaolo Banking Group, its strategic partners and a panel of high level experts to get the tools to support the transition towards the ESG principles.

The event, organised by Intesa Sanpaolo Banking Group,  Platinum Sponsor of Innovation House, is dedicated to entrepreneurs, funds and institutions.
