COP28: sustainable investing the new bottom line for financial sector

Investing in sustainable projects should be a primary focus for the financial sector, the Luxembourg Sustainable Finance Initiative (LSFI) is telling decision makers at COP28 in Dubai.

Speaking to OnePoint5Media and Allied4Future, Nicoletta Centofanti, CEO, LSFI, and Maria Eugenia Tapia Rojo, the not-for-profit’s communication manager, shared their vision of how sustainable finance systems can be better shaped to deliver transformational societal change.

Watch what they had to say to me about their role in coordinating this transition, as they took time out from raising awareness about the critical role of the sector.
