Building Bridges is an initiative, initiated and operated by SFG, to bring together individuals and organisations that are committed to shaping the global sustainable finance agenda in a summit and impact finance events.
It is an open and collaborative effort that aims to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable economy in Switzerland and abroad. To this end, Building Bridges promotes the finance community’s contribution to realising the SDGs. Practically, the initiative provides a forum for discussion and cooperation among financial and other private sector actors and institutions, public authorities, international organisations, as well as not-for-profit and academic stakeholders dedicated to achieving the transition to a financial system that is fit for the future.
At the core of the initiative is the recognition that the scale and complexity of the transition require “building bridges” between the multiple stakeholders in the finance, government, and sustainable development communities.
During the 2021 Edition of Building Bridges, Sustainable Finance Geneva will hold a panel on Regenerative Agriculture: Finance in Action. This panel will present an innovative project on regenerative agriculture and discuss a way to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal of Zero Hunger. SFG will also hold a workshop on Creating a Market for Investing in Peace: the Next Big Challenge for the International Ecosystem to highlight how SDG16 is highly actionable to the financial industry.
