SFF Replay

Sustainability

Welcome to the 6th Edition of the BNP Paribas Sustainable Future Forum !

Thank you for your interest in the Sustainable Future Forum – Global Edition (SFF) which was broadcast live on Wednesday 20 October 2021. We had over 4,500 registered delegates across the three time zones and we are delighted to have the full programme available on-demand here for you.

What resonated throughout the programme as we moved from Asia Pacific to Europe, the Middle East and Africa, through to the Americas, from our clients, policy makers, industry experts as well as our own BNP Paribas sustainability experts, can be summarised into three core themes:

  1. Business must act now, we need transformative action, there is no time to wait
  2. To really accelerate the transition, business needs to be supported by government policy and so they must work together
  3. We must also collaborate and partner in ways we never have before, across sectors, with academia, with government to truly innovate and move the economy to net-zero

Just days before COP26, giving us hope and inspiration that a sustainable future is absolutely within reach, was the stellar line-up of our speakers in the programme who demonstrated how they are already leading the charge towards net-zero, with their concrete actions, and explaining the important role that sustainable finance is playing in accelerating their transition. 

We hope you enjoy the replays!
