    Transforming Transportation 2024

    For millions of people around the world, transportation is a lifeline – to jobs, education and opportunity. But the way people and goods move is also a significant contributor to climate change. As the world reaches for solutions, many are looking to the transport sector for answers that ensure a more livable planet. Financing is a core theme of Transforming Transportation 2024, which will bring together global leaders and transport professionals to explore how all stakeholders can mobilize resources for greener, safer, resilient transport for all, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.

    During the two-day event, and week-long side activities, transport and financial leaders and professionals will take a deep dive into the urgent need for climate financing in transportation; the correlation between investments, economic growth, and climate targets; and the role that organizations of all kinds, from development banks to community groups, can play in driving transformative change.

    Corporate Impact Measurement & Management

    Both corporate social investors (CSIs) and other impact investors share the common goal of fostering positive social and environmental change through Impact Measurement and Management (IMM), but CSIs may introduce variations due to their corporate ties. CSIs have the potential of integrating social impact into the business context and IMM plays a crucial role in achieving this, using language and data that resonate with corporate colleagues and ensure meaningful impact metrics comparability.

    Following our successful article publication and session at Impact Week 2023, mark Wednesday 20 March, 15:00 – 16:15 for an e-talk. Expect inspiring discussions with thought leaders on integrating social impact into corporate contexts, emphasizing the role of Impact Measurement and Management in achieving this synergy. Register here!

    Visionary Investing: A Deep Dive into Impact with Adam Bendell

    Visionary Investing: Join us for a compelling in-depth Deep Dive conversation with Adam Bendell, CEO of Toniic, the global impact investing network that empowers investors to advance the frontier of social and environmental change. This session is an exploration into the dynamic world of impact investing, enriched by Bendell’s profound insights shared in a recent interview with Impact Entrepreneur correspondent Catherine Griffin and reflected in his thought-provoking article for IE Magazine.“Impact investors don’t start from a place of what’s in it for me,” Bendell asserts, “but rather, what is the world I envision and how can we get there to create systems better than those we inherited. They come from a profound care for the world, a radical beginning point.” This foundational perspective sets the tone for our dialogue, as we unravel the philosophical and practical layers of impact investing.Our discussion will examine the delicate balance between financial returns and substantial impact achievements, emphasizing the significance of Bendell’s approach that prioritizes systemic improvement over individual gain. We will delve into the criticality and complexities of impact measurement, understanding how rigorous assessment underpins every decision in the pursuit of genuine change. Participants will gain insights into methodologies that guide savvy investment choices, learning to discern opportunities that resonate with both financial acumen and ethical imperatives.Moreover, we will unveil strategic pathways that illuminate how investors can align their portfolios with their most aspirational goals for global betterment. This conversation is not just about the ‘how’ of impact investing; it’s a profound look at the ‘why’ that motivates each decision and investment.
