UBP partners up for Building Bridges

UBP partners up for Building Bridges

A cross-sectoral push for sustainable finance


UBP is proud to be joining forces with peers from the financial industry, as well as partners from the United Nations, NGOs, academia and government bodies, for Building Bridges, the agenda-setting event on sustainable finance. 

Taking place in Geneva, Switzerland from 29 November to 2 December, Building Bridges is expected to attract over 2,000 participants from diverse backgrounds to over 70 sessions. 

By channelling capital towards responsible economic activities and innovative companies tackling global challenges, the financial sector can be a powerful force in driving a sustainable economy.

UBP has continually enhanced its responsible investment and impact investing expertise and offering over the past decade. But achieving a large-scale shift towards a sustainable financial system requires close collaboration between governments, the financial sector, investors, the corporate world, NGOs and academia. 

Building Bridges, organised by Sustainable Finance Geneva (SFG) in collaboration with Swiss Sustainable Finance (SSF), offers a unique opportunity for this sort of cross-sector collaboration. The four-day event will allow participants to exchange knowledge, generate new ideas and drive concrete action through a range of networking opportunities and sessions covering issues from climate change, biodiversity and water, to gender equality and decent work. 

By supporting this event, UBP is showing its determination to play an active role in shaping a financial system that responds to the economic and social challenges of our time. Recognising the environmental and economic urgency of tackling the biodiversity crisis, UBP is hosting an interactive panel discussion on biodiversity on 30 November from 12.30–2.00 p.m., where participants from a wide range of backgrounds will explore how to turn aspirations for a nature-positive future into genuine, measurable and long-term change. 

Visit the Building Bridges website to check out the full programme and register. Participation is open and free of charge, but spaces are limited.

Biodiversity loss – a threat to our economy?

All too often, economic progress and conservation of nature are seen as mutually exclusive. Indeed, biodiversity loss is considered to be the price to pay for development. In a new report, the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), in cooperation with UBP, shows how the opposite is true by guiding financial institutions to measure their nature-related financial risks.
