President, Building Bridges

Building Bridges is more than an event.

It is an open and collaborative effort that aims to accelerate the transition to a sustainable financial system.

Building Bridges brings diverse actors from the finance industry, the United Nations, international organizations, NGOs, academia, and government together in collaboration around a common vision of advancing sustainable finance to address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Building Bridges promotes an inclusive and systemic vision of a sustainable society that equally addresses social, economic and environmental issues. The initiative convenes a diverse community of stakeholders from both the Global North and South.
