The financial sector and development banks have a major role in stipulating circular business models, enabling socially responsible businesses to contribute to a sustainable transformation of our economy. How can banks recognise and acknowledge the sustainability of a circular business concept?
This conference is intended for bankers and investors, conscious of the importance of securing financing for transformation of the economy as a way to ensure economic, social and environmental sustainability of our way of life. The central focus of the conference is the development and application of evaluation models for assessing circularity of companies. The utility of further tools for assessment, such as sustainable reporting and the concept of corporate social responsibility will also be presented.
In the introductory part of the conference, the participants will hear about the strategy of sustainable development and the regulatory framework of sustainable financing. Following the theoretical elaborations, a sequence of best practice examples will be shared by the representatives of banks and companies.
The conference is organized by Bank Association of Slovenia and Gm in cooperation with SRIP – Strategic Research and Innovation Partnership for Circular Economy – Circular Economy. The event is part of Circular Opportunity Days 2019, a part of CBA (Circular business Academy). It will be held at Hotel Slon, Kavarna 1, Ljubljana.
