Rethinking Financial Valuations – The Integration of Sustainability Considerations

October 4, 2022 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm CET

(Open to public)

Our Building Bridges event on October 4, 2022 titled “Rethinking Financial Valuations – The Integration of Sustainability Considerations”, featured leaders that are driving the transition to sustainability.

Capital allocation decisions often do not adequately factor in sustainability considerations, leading to sub-optimal decisions from both sustainability and profitability perspectives. Negative environmental/social impacts that are “externalities” today, can easily become costs with an actual cash flow impact. The session focused on the importance of sustainability integration in financial valuations and touched upon potential approaches to tackling this challenge.

The event had an hybrid format, allowing virtual and in-site participation at the International Conference Centre Geneva (Room E).

This event took place during the 3rd edition of Building Bridges Week, which featured more than 65 discussions, workshops, roundtables, and presentations from October 3 to 6 in Geneva.

Building Bridges is a joint initiative launched in 2019 by Swiss public authorities, the finance community, the United Nations, and other international partners to accelerate the transition to a global economic model aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals. At the core of the initiative is the recognition that the scale and complexity of the transition require “building bridges” between multiple stakeholders in the finance, government, and international development communities.
