The day will close with a keynote from one of the world's leading experts on sustainable finance, Sony Kapoor. A Visiting Fellow at the London School of Economics and former Chair of the Banking Stakeholder Group of the European Banking Authority, as well as advisor to many governments and development NGOs around the world, Kapoor will offer his perspective on how the net zero transition has become a corporate race for survival.
