We were pleased to host the IIF's flagship 2024 European Summit in Paris, beginning with a special evening function on Wednesday, May 15 followed by a full day of programming on Thursday, May 16. This Summit was dedicated to exploring the strategic use of sustainable finance to drive growth, foster innovation, and facilitate the transition to a net-zero economy.

Given Europe's longstanding leadership in the green revolution, our 2024 IIF European Summit explored how the financial services industry is adapting to the swiftly changing political, policy, and market dynamics in sustainable finance. The event covered an array of topics, including:

+ The Future of European Finance - Enabling Green Growth
+ Charting Course to Transition
+ Financing Growth - Enabling Green Technology
+ Building Robust Sustainable Finance Markets
+ New Policy and Regulatory Landscape for Sustainable Finance
+ Rethinking Sustainable Investment
+ 'Views from the C-Suite' and 'In-Conversation with Policymakers' sessions

To examine these themes, the IIF brought together policymakers, regulators, and global financial firms for a lively and interactive Summit!
