Market Forces at Work: Institutional Investors and a Sustainable World

April 19, 2018 | 14:00 to 15:00 ET, 18:00 to 19:00 GMT
Atrium, World Bank Group Headquarters

This high-level panel discussion will focus on how innovative partnerships between the World Bank Group, investors, and governments can lead to win-win financial solutions that help countries meet 21st century aspirations and support sustainable and inclusive growth, while offering investors sound returns. Building on the World Bank Group’s engagement with institutional investors, speakers will discuss ways to incorporate sustainability considerations into investment and business decisions in financially viable ways. Panelists will be asked to reflect on trends, opportunities, and challenges for unlocking private capital flows to support critical development projects across and beyond G20 markets, and to achieve positive development impact. The event will build momentum toward the G20 Investor Forum in Buenos Aires in November 2018.
