The importance of discussing these themes comes from the growing importance of sustainable investment in the pre-Covid-19 pandemic period. In addition, the health, economic and social implications of Covid-19 pandemic prompted global leaders to call for "building back better" by placing sustainable investment, environmental, social and corporate governance and climate change considerations at the forefront of the international agenda.
