Capital Link is pleased to invite you to attend

 

the “14th Annual Capital Link Sustainability Forum” entitled

“Sustainability – Investments & Economic Growth”

which will take place as an in-person event, at the Divani Caravel Hotel

 

FORUM OVERVIEW

Adopting Sustainability and integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria is the only option for sustainable development – especially in the present era, which is marked by exponential technological advancements across various levels, sectors, and industries. In this rapidly evolving environment, it is imperative to leverage an array of financial and investment tools.

Economic growth is evolving, and now revolves around the ESG investment philosophy that is increasingly adopted both by investors who wish to contribute to sustainable development through their investments, and by fund managers who choose investment tools that also contribute to Sustainability.

The transition to a sustainable tomorrow is huge and requires all parties to collaborate so that adopted measures can bring about a new approach not only to finance, but also to the economy and society in general.

 

The “14th Annual Capital Link Sustainability Forum” will cover these critical issues as well as the initiatives undertaken in this context.

The Forum is organized on an annual basis with the participation of senior representatives from the Greek Government, Local Government representatives, senior executives from both the public and the private sectors, and Greek-American entrepreneurs. Coming together, these important figures cover crucial topics and initiatives they have undertaken that contribute to Sustainable Development, as well as Social and Economic Transformation, and the way the private sector and the State can effectively enhance their capabilities and resources in order to achieve their common goal, which is none other than Sustainability, Investments and Growth.
