On 7 December 2022, Invest-NL, together with the European Association of Long-Term Investors (ELTI), organised a Workshop on 'Impact Investing' in Amsterdam.
Supportive of the goals of the EU Action Plan on Sustainable Finance, there is a huge role to play for National Promotional Banks and Institutions in facilitating societal transitions to enable a sustainable future.
This peer-to-peer learning event was aimed to exchange the latest insights around impact investment policies and how these can be put in practice.
Special thanks to the very inspirational guest speakers: Saara Mattero from the Ilmastorahasto - The Finnish Climate Fund, Clément Damasse from Bpifrance, Cyril Gouiffès from the European Investment Fund (EIF) and Joanne De Jonge from Invest-NL.
- Joanne de Jonge (Invest-NL) – “Invest-NL’s strategic positioning as the Dutch NPI enabling and accelerating Societal transitions: our impact mission and how do we put this in practice”
