Sustainable Finance for Breakfast (3)

Held on Thursday, July 13, 2017, 8.30-10.00am.

In association with the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, Oxford


  • Ben Caldecott (Smith School, Oxford)

  • Meryam Omi (LGIM)



The third of our regular breakfast meetings on Sustainable Finance, held together with the Oxford Smith School, is scheduled for July 13, at Wax Chandlers Hall. The intention is to cover:

  • the most significant developments in the Sustainable Finance space over the last month;
  • one or two topics in more depth (time allowing); and
  • what we all need to keep an eye on over the Summer.

As with the first two meetings, Ben Caldecott, Director of the Sustainable Finance Programme at the Oxford Smith School, has agreed to set the scene and steer the discussion.

The format is the same: our guest panellist(s) will share their latest insights, Ben will run through the latest developments – and then everyone else will (I hope) wade in.

As I have said before, Sustainable Finance is not a zero-sum game; we all benefit if we are able to share our thoughts. This month, we’re delighted to welcome Meryam Omi, head of sustainability and responsible investment strategy at Legal & General Investment Management. Meryam is responsible for developing ESG products, research and integration across the asset classes, and recently announced LGIM’s commitment to the Transition Pathway Initiative, TCFD and its own Climate Impact Pledge.

If you would like to join us, please let Alex know by emailing or phoning the Centre (0207 621 1056). As ever, coffee/tea, buns and so forth will be provided.

Sincerely yours,

Andrew Hilton
