Hear from leading academics about the future interplay between sustainability, finance and technology during the Responsible Investing Summer Course.
From 20 July to 25 August, we broadcasted six interactive lectures. This Responsible Investing Summer Course is part of our Headlight event series.
The lecturers discussed the following responsible investing topics, among others:
- How can we be sure that investments have a positive impact in the real world?
- How can we ensure the business models being developed address issues such as climate change, biodiversity, the circular economy and social challenges?
- Does AI in ESG really work and what is its future?
