UPCOMING! December 2014, GIFSC Sustainability Gathering, Dublin Castle, Ireland
This December will see the third annual GIFSC Sustainability Gathering take place in Dublin, Ireland. Following the success of last year’s event, which attracted 300 attendees, hundreds of investors, entrepreneurs and policy-makers are expected to converge on Dublin castle for two days of discussion, cutting edge debate and deal making.
Leading financiers and entrepreneurs have embraced the vast array of opportunities presented by the sustainability challenges faced by the world: the $1 trillion each year that needs to be invested to address climate change; the enormous capital demands of a sustainable agricultural sector fit to feed 9 billion people; the $22 trillion required for global water infrastructure over the next two decades and the forecast 40% increase in energy demand by 2030.
The Sustainability Gathering brings together those finding solutions to the world’s sustainability challenges – whether by developing products and services, or by laying the policy foundations – with the investors and asset managers looking to provide capital.
