At E4S, we are committed to fostering meaningful collaborations to drive positive change. Our Annual Summit serves as a platform for our community to come together, exchange insights, and chart together the course of a more sustainable future.
This year’s summit will focus on two pivotal themes that hold the key to driving systemic change within organizations and across the real economy: Sustainable Finance and Purpose-Driven Governance.

Sustainable Finance: the financial sector can significantly advance the transition towards a more sustainable economy if capital is allocated appropriately and the underlying risks are holistically assessed. During the Annual Summit, we’ll present the latest research conducted at E4S and engage in thoughtful conversations with experts and actors of the financial ecosystem.

Purpose-Driven Governance: Effective governance isn’t just about rules and regulations; it’s about defining an organization’s purpose and aligning it with actions that benefit all stakeholders. Our Summit will explore the latest role of purpose in governance, emphasizing the importance of ethical leadership, transparency, and accountability in achieving sustainable growth and societal impact.
