Swesif has the pleasure of inviting members of all the Nordic sustainable investment forums to Stockholm for the annual Nordic SIF-meeting on the theme “Exploring the Frontier”.
On the first day the conference will revolve around three themes:
- Catching up with the long term perspectives
- Engagement for real change
- Accelerating sustainable investments through emerging technologies
Each dimension will be discussed by an inspiring speaker in the morning and followed by a workshop. The workshops will be held as parallel sessions during the afternoon. The main purpose of the workshops is to investigate possibilities for action and further collaboration.
