    About this event

    After being held virtually in 2020 and 2021, our flagship annual summit returns as an in-person event that will be hosted by NatWest Group in Edinburgh on Tuesday 6 September 2022.

    The summit is the premier event in ethical finance, and is themed ‘ESG in a Volatile World: Profit, Principles or Politics’. It will tackle three core thematics: climate, nature and social. Confirmed speakers include Rt. Hon. Alok Sharma MP, Sarah Breeden, Saker Nusseibeh and Anshula Kant. Click here to find out more.

    As well as looking at macroeconomic issues impacting global markets, we will have specific sessions on topics including:

    • The growing impact of conflict and geopolitics in ESG
    • Core global challenges in financing climate adaptation and mitigation
    • The role of finance in protecting and restoring nature and biodiversity
    • The emergence of the S in ESG as a core priority
    • The role of financial leaders in defining organisational purpose
    • Financing the SDGs

    Our in-person events offer a unique ability to forge connections, and over the years our Summits have built capacity, influenced policy, enabled deals, informed new products, driven framework commitments, helped deploy capital to the SDGs and developed lifelong friendships. If you have attended our flagship global Summit in the past, we would love to see you again in September; if not, then now is your chance!

    The ticket price includes the Summit, Edinburgh Castle Reception and the opportunity to apply to attend private side events that will take place on Monday 5th and Wednesday 7th September 2022.
