Sustainable Infrastructure: Valuing the cost of risks

DATE: March 19, 2019 - March 19, 2019
LOCATION: Geneva Switzerland

At the heart of this event is SAVi, an assessment methodology helping governments and investors steer capital towards sustainable infrastructure.

During this event, we will discuss:

  • How does sustainable infrastructure systematically bring more value-for-money than business-as-usual alternatives?
  • How can risks be reduced across an infrastructure project's life cycle by incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations?
  • How can we calculate the costs of these risks?


Speakers include:

  • Nathalie Bernasconi-Osterwalder, Group Director, Economic Law and Policy, IISD
  • Fulai Sheng, Head, Economic and Fiscal Policy Unit, Resources and Markets Branch, UN Environment
  • Andrea Bassi, Senior Associate, IISD
  • David Uzsoki, Senior Advisor, Infrastructure Finance and Green Finance, IISD
  • John Maughan, Research Program Manager, Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP)
  • Quendresa Rugova, Sustainable Finance Geneva
