We are a movement bridging the gap between finance and sustainability.

Building Bridges is a leading collaborative initiative that gives a voice to a large community of decision-makers, advocates, experts, and financial actors from both the Global North and South. Alongside our major events we host in the fall, we also organize various discussions during the year to foster collaboration and advance the SDGs.
