Finexpo goes green

No sooner have we closed the doors on our annual capital markets conference Finexpo – City Technology Strategies, than we’re opening registration for a new event, Finexpo – Green City. It’s part of a strategy to extend the Finexpo brand to encompass new markets and deliver more focussed market intelligence through our growing events portfolio.

Finexpo – Green City will bring together senior business leaders, traders, technologists and green professionals within the financial services industry to stake out the issues, and share insights, knowledge and best practice in preparing for a carbon-constrained future.

The financial services industry has been at the forefront of the response to climate change, spearheading a raft of initiatives in carbon trading and indices creation, investment funding and sustainability, green building and product design, and via data centre optimisation strategies. We’ll be looking to tap into each of these issues on the day, with an influential speaker panel comprising experts from across the banking and carbon communities.  

As good corporate citizens, we’re also aware of our own responsibilities in this arena. Finexpo – Green City will be supported by a purely-online marketing campaign, sponsor literature will be distributed to conference delegates by memory stick and we’ve engaged the Carbon Netural Company to ensure that the environmental impact of our event is offset by investment in renewable energy and environmental projects. For Finexpo - Green City, the unavoidable energy use and emissions produced in the course of the event will be offset by investment in a wind farm in Tamil Nadu, India; an agricultural methane capture project in Germany; and reforestation in Mynydd-Y-Garnedd, Wales.
