In the last few decades, firms’ social responsibility has increasingly been found to be a strategic factor that not only serves stakeholders’ interest and benefits social outcomes, but also enhances financial stability, return and value for investors.

In early 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic crisis was a major disruptor to the global economy, financial markets and society as a whole. Two years in, the world seems to be at a turning point, although we are not yet “after Covid”.

This workshop offers opportunities for academics and policymakers to discuss the role of social responsibility, banks, and financial markets in the Covid-19 crisis in light of the recent international policy agenda aimed at fostering climate and social changes worldwide.

It will also provide the opportunity to consider recent risks and challenges that are currently impacting banks and markets and that could set back progress on sustainability objectives and on the post-Covid economic recovery.

 This workshop is free to attend and there are a limited number of spaces to attend in person.
