SDSN Germany, Sustainable Digital Finance Alliance & UN Task Force on Digital Financing of the SDGs in cooperation with Frankfurt School of Finance & Management


In order to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), it is critical to mobilize private finance at greater speed and scale. Financial innovations, new technologies and digitalization have the potential to contribute significantly to this task. Against this backdrop, the United Nation’s Secretary-General has appointed the Task Force on Digital Financing of the SDGs to investigate how this potential can be unlocked while managing at the same time the associated risks.

This high-level conference introduced the Task Force’s results and the outcomes of the “German Sustainable Fintech Stocktake” undertaken by the Sustainable Digital Finance Alliance to relevant actors from business, politics, civil society and academia in Germany and Europe. The aim was to create a space for discussion on new trends in the finance sector and how to leverage innovation for financing sustainable development with key actors from the digital, sustainability and finance sectors and aims to trigger off further initiatives by these and other actors.

The event consisted of three sessions with keynotes and panel discussions but also allowed for comments and questions from the audience. The conference was followed by a reception.
