Content of the event

Climate protection and socially responsible corporate governance are the issues of our time. The demand for ESG-compliant financial products is unfractured and set to firmly increase over the next decades. This sets the scene for companies globally to tailor their products and services such to allow access to this steadily emerging sustainable financial markets with ESG-compliant financings. However, these opportunities are not readily available in every industry. Aviation is one of the sectors where – lacking access to electrification at a broader scale – challenges in meeting carbon reduction targets become most visible.

Our panelists will be happy to provide insights into the future of financing options. In addition, speakers from the aviation industry will present their views on possibilities and developments to make aviation sustainable future ready.

Join us to discuss requirements and possible solutions for ESG financial products and the aviation of tomorrow.
