Broadway Bites: Julia Meyer

Julia Meyer, from the Zurich University of Applied Sciences, discusses the future of sustainable finance.

Sustainable finance and ESG investing are facing headwinds. Without clear definitions and standards, the risk of “greenwashing” is high.

Julia Meyer, Professor of Sustainable Finance at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) joins us to discuss why sustainability is relevant for the financial sector, and how finance can meaningfully contribute to sustainable development.

Broadway Bites is a monthly speaker series at Swissnex on Broadway in Cambridge, bringing inspiring guests from our global network to give a talk on their work.
