Inaugural FC4S Network Meeting

Inaugural FC4S Network Meeting

Event Date : 12 - 13 April 2018, Milan, Italy

Event Location : Milan, Italy

Nearly 20 of the world’s leading financial centres gathered in Milan to hold the inaugural meeting of the FC4S – the new international network to accelerate green and sustainable finance.

Financial centres bring together a cross-section of different activities including banking, capital markets, insurance and investment, as well as regulation and new themes like fintech. It is this clustering effect that the Network will harness for sustainable development. The goal of the Network is to “exchange experience and take common action on shared priorities to accelerate the expansion of green and sustainable finance”. It will do this by raising awareness, strengthening market practice and promoting market expansion. It will also share experiences on financial innovation, building capacity and engaging in dialogue with policymakers.

Further to this, FC4S hosted a public event titled ‘Harnessing Financial Centres for Sustainable Development’ on 12 April as part of the Salone del Risparmio.
