Social Impact Investment & Sustainability
2021 Annual Conference
With strong support of the United Nations system, we invited more than 30 outstanding leaders and effective practitioners in their respective fields of impact investing and sustainable development goals, including global political and international leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, scientists and professional researchers, to discuss "Strategic Thinking and Innovative Actions about Social Impact Investment in the Post-Pandemic Era". The panelists also discussed the guiding principles of impact investing in the post-pandemic environment, innovative scientific investment to drive economic recovery, carbon neutrality and green finance, long-term strategic planning for enterprises to practice impact investing, value assessment system construction for impact investing, and share their successes and practical lessons. We brought together these sparks of innovative ideas to form a guiding principle and action strategy for investment in the post- pandemic situation, to strongly promote the achievement of sustainable development goals, and put forward constructive suggestions, which were certainly of great value to the leaders who are responsible for sustainable development and every global audience who care about the future of human sustainability. This was of great benefit to the global audience of leaders with sustainable development responsibilities and everyone who cares about the future of human sustainable development.
