Tonight marks the hugely anticipated FT/IFC Sustainable Finance Awards, where hundreds of representatives from across the world gather at the Landmark Hotel in London to recognise the importance of achievements within sustainable finance and investment.
Blue & Green Tomorrow is attending the event and will announce the winners of the awards tomorrow, but we present here a short run down of what’s to come.
The Financial Times and the International Finance Cooperation created awards covering four categories; demonstrating leadership in environmental social and cooperate governance (ESG).
These are: Sustainable Bank of the Year; Sustainable Investor of the Year; Sustainable Investment of the Year; and Technology in Sustainable Finance.
