As part of an OECD Forum series, the Virtual Event “A Green COVID Recovery: the role of Finance” will took place on Wednesday 30 September.

We discussed how finance can play a central role in ensuring a green and inclusive recovery by looking beyond  traditional metrics, and focusing more on Environmental, Social, and Governance performance. With major economic recovery plans being adopted in response to the Covid-19 crisis, our societies are presented with an opportunity to help shape economic activity for decades to come.
