AccountAbility's CEO Sunil A. Misser Moderates Discussion on Sustainable Finance for UNEP-FI and Climate Action

 

Wed Oct 21 2020

As part of AccountAbility’s commitment to advancing the sustainability agenda, we partnered with Climate Action and the UN Environment Program Finance Initiative (UNEP-FI) to discuss the Future of Sustainable Finance

On Thursday, October 15th, AccountAbility’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Sunil A. Misser, virtually moderated a panel about what it means to “Drive Real Change in Sustainable Finance in a Post-Pandemic Society” – the feature event in“Part 4” of the Sustainable Investment Forum North America program agenda.

Watch the full panel on-demand at this link and view a "highlight reel" here and below.

This panel brought together esteemed academics and industry thought leaders –such as:

  • Mamadou-Abou Sarr, President and Chief Executive Officer, V-Square Quantitative Management, and French Foreign Trade Advisor
  • Dr. C. Adam Schlosser, of the Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change at MIT
  • Ivan Frishberg, Director of Impact Policy, Amalgamated Bank and Member of the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF)
  • Dr. Gita R. Rao, of the MIT Sloan School of Management
  • Rob Zochowski, of Harvard Business School’s Impact-Weighted Accounts Project

Mr. Misser expertly guided a dynamic conversation around the following key questions:

  1. From the perspective of CEOs and Boards, how do we transition the ESG agenda from a “nice to have” to a “have to have” priority?
  2. There is considerable discussion about how the Financial Services sector has failed to address ESG matters in a satisfactory manner – what is “at stake” here, and what solutions does the panel propose to improve the sector’s response?
  3. What are some effective practices and protocols of making the "bridge" between academia and business work better to drive meaningful and impactful change?
  4. Are AI technologies, quantitative methodologies, and mega-information databases a “means to an end,” or the next “stairway to heaven?”
  5. What are the three "big things" that will have the biggest impact on our lives in the next 3-5 years?
