Investors are more and more aware of their vital role in promoting sustainable development by practicing sustainable finance. They have to meet the growing expectations of institutions, sector and civil society to build responsible economies that take environmental, social and societal impact into consideration. They must also ensure that they will avoid the crisis that happened ten years ago. Their commitment is crucial to support companies that are determined to create value not only for themselves but also for all their stakeholders, defined as people “impacted by the decisions taken by companies”. The realization of sustainable development does not only rely on meeting ambitious economic, social and governance criteria. It also calls for fresh thinking. Investments in culture and art could play an important role in stimulating transformative ideas on sustainability issues. This session will explore sustainability visions, strategies and good practices of different stakeholders, including investors. Special emphasis will be paid to the role of culture and art in promoting sustainability.
