ICC Banking Technical Webinar - Sustainable Trade Finance

ICC United Kingdom is delighted to invite you to this first Webinar in Sustainable Trade Finance, as part of our 2020 Series of Banking Technical Seminars.

Regulatory authorities, as well as customers, investors, and employees, are focusing on whether global threats such as climate change pose prudential risks to banks and the extent to which their portfolios are aligned, or out of sync, with sustainable development goals.

In response to these challenges ICC, with its members from commercial banks, partners from multilateral development institutions and other trade environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) experts, is exploring how to accelerate the use of trade finance to encourage sustainable business practices.

This webinar will allow participants to exchange best practices and gain insights into some of the latest industry trends.
