Impact Investing for the Local and Global Goals
July 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Join 2030hub, the Department for International Development and guests to learn about and explore the Global Goals at home and abroad, an in particular how we create financial solutions to support the much needed impact.
This is part of the Department for International Development’s national conversation to find out more about the public’s views on and interest in ethical, responsible and impactful investment practices. This includes investing in companies or sectors that make positive change in the world, like renewable energy. This also means avoiding investing in companies that do harm, such as those that employ child labour in the developing world.
Everyone can play a part in ending poverty. Governments, charities, businesses and people around the world are playing a role. The financial industry is developing products that aim both to create good financial performance and positive impact on the world. We want to hear from people in the UK about how they want to invest today to build the future of tomorrow.
This conversation will include focus groups and events across the country, as well as a national survey. The results of the conversation will be published in the Autumn. This work builds on work government and industries have been leading to bring impact investment to the mainstream.
