null Sustainable Finance Conference, Germany 2019

The German Green and Sustainable Finance Cluster and Climate Kic will organise a conference on sustainable finance in Frankfurt, on October 16 2019. Gábor Bartus, the NFFT’s secretary will attend the event.

Due to complex interrelations of global economic processes, it is necessary to bring innovative forces and responsibilities from the financial sector, investing public, politics and civil society all together. 

The conference will present the work and the results of the Sustainable Finance Advisory Board of the German government and offer an insight into the activities and objectives of the stakeholders in the economy, civil society and academia.

The agenda of the round table discussions and panel sessions will include the achievement of the goals of the Paris Agreement in 2015, the communication of sustainable finance, knowledge transfer – the concepts of strong employee engagement and the EU’s sustainable finance policy.

Human

Nagy kép

Every generation needs human resources: knowledgeable and skilful individuals in appropriate quantity and in good health. Society cannot afford to lose the skills of the disadvantaged groups. Although there is no relevant statistical data, economic value of the human capital likely exceeded that of the material capital around the turn of the millennium, rendering humans the most important resources of the nation.

Natural

Nagy kép

Ecosystem services provided by natural resources are direct and indirect benefits for society, produced by natural and human-regulated ecosystems. Amongst the benefits are provisioning services (food, animal feed, raw material), natural cycle regulating services (climate stabilization, pollination, flood control), supporting services (nutrient cycling, soil formation), and cultural services (recreation, education, art inspiration).

Economic

Nagy kép
The basis of a society’s material growth is economic resources: physical capital, financial capital as storage and transmitter of value, technological knowledge in the form of intellectual property and know-how, and built environment. Entrepreneurs become the cornerstones of sustainable development by discovering the unexploited forms of value creation and managing the utilization of the majority of human, natural and human-created physical resources.

Social

Nagy kép
Moral norms and values, relationships and trust between individuals, as well as organizations, institutions, cultural activities and cultural heritage make up the social resources of a nation. Social capital is the result of historical development, therefore its quality is largely determined by the relation of individuals and organizations to the crucial stages of this development (national history), as well as to the intellectual and material recollections (cultural heritage).
