CFWI is a key action under the Ireland for Finance Strategy is now in its fourth year, and once again is proudly sponsored by AIB. CFWI has, over the years, developed into the landmark sustainable finance event covering broader environmental, social and governance (ESG) topics in Ireland.
CFWI will take place in October this year, in advance of the key 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26 in November. 2021 is a critical year for Climate Change and Sustainable Finance and CFWI21 will showcase the financial ecosystems best in class activities. These include how firms have secured leadership buy-in, supported internal sustainable finance talent development, overcame data challenges, and utilised digital technologies to roll out new products, while fully integrating reporting frameworks, specifically the Task Force on Climate related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
