Mobilizing the next $10 trillion

December 2-6 | New York City and Toronto

Sustainable Finance Week, a product of collaboration between Bloomberg and our core partners, is a new center of gravity focused on accelerating the next $10 trillion in sustainable finance. Four core events will showcase the emerging trends, visionary ideas and market moving players critical to mainstreaming sustainable finance — and provide the backdrop for essential conversations, insights and leaders to emerge.

Worldwide, sustainable assets under management grew over 500% in ten years. At this rate of growth, $40 trillion will be in-market by 2020. The next $10 trillion will see the creation of the defining standards and practices for business and the markets for decades to come. It represents the mainstreaming of ESG from an ”experiment” to the everyday reality for capital markets. Let’s make it happen faster.
