Green Finance in the Covid Era

Collective awakening is needed!
The opportunities that Corona brings are obvious - especially in the much-discussed environmental benefits. Not just this, but it also is related to the consciousness level, this “pandemic” is doing something to our society and we are being called to start questioning – in many different aspects. This situation has such disruptive effects that collective awakening is on the agenda and with it, the topic of ESG; therefore it looks like COVID-19 will in some way lead to a realignment

Launch of the Austrian Green Finance Agenda?

On February 28, Minister of Sustainable Development Köstinger and Finance Minister Löger addressed the public via a press conference. At least by optimists the presentation of concrete measures to achieve the climate goals was expected.

Impact Investing Market Map

Aus einer vagen Idee wird ein konkretes Projekt. Vor rund einem Jahrzehnt noch ein absolutes Nischenthema, wird Impact Investing zusehends state of the art. Mit den globalen Herausforderungen wächst auch die Bereitschaft von Politik und Investoren diese zu meistern. Die Frage ist nur - wie?

Globale Initiatoreninitiative

Auch die globale Initiatoreninitiative UNPRI (United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment) war noch vor einigen Jahren nur Insidern bekannt.
