Pensioen Pro Partner Webinar - Hosting WWF “Our Planet: Too Big To Fail”
Our economy is fundamentally underpinned by the stability and resilience of nature. Due to systemic flaws in the very same economy, this stability is no longer guaranteed. Many investors and people working in the financial sector are increasingly aware of this. But how can the financial sector save the planet and therefore preserve its own long-term stability? And what can we do in the Netherlands? During the Pensioen Pro Partner Webinar, this will be explored. Created by the Emmy®️ Award-winning Silverback Films and WWF 'Our Planet: Too Big To Fail' explores, through interviews with sector leaders, the risks caused by natural loss, the impact of current investments and the role the financial sector can play in achieving a truly sustainable future.
Pensioen Pro Partner Webinar is the proud host of this short, yet controversial WWF film.
'Our Planet: Too Big To Fail' provides the context for a round table discussion with WWF NL and sector leaders on the critical role and impact of the Dutch sector in integrating biodiversity into financial decisions.
