Building Bridges was founded in 2019 as a joint initiative by Swiss authorities, the financial world, the United Nations and other international partners in Geneva. Its objective is to accelerate the transition to a global economic model in line with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
At the heart of the initiative is the recognition that, for example, combating the effects of climate change (SDG 13) can only succeed with the involvement of all relevant stakeholders from the areas of finance, government and international development. This in turn requires the joint establishment of information and communication bridges to precisely these relevant stakeholders. This is the backdrop behind a multi-day conference that takes place in Geneva once a year.
Zürcher Kantonalbank is also involved
Zürcher Kantonalbank is now a «platinum» sponsor of the event, which will take place from 3 to 6 October 2022. We are also sending experts to speak on topics related to sustainable investment.
