How business can help build a sustainable world – the role of ethical finance in Scotland

Posted: 2nd October 2015


Thursday 29th October 2015
Postgraduate Centre
Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh
6.15pm – 8.15pm

Heriot Watt, in partnership with the Edinburgh Ethical Finance Round Table and in association with the Chartered Management Institute, invite you to our 3rd Thought Leadership event: How business can help build a sustainable world: the role of ethical finance in Scotland.

This Thought Leadership event will debate what ethical finance in Scotland can and should involve. It will draw heavily on work carried out in response to the call made by John Swinney, MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Sustainable Growth, for the formation of a Scottish Ethical Finance Hub. Presentations will include a review of the recently developed business case for the Hub, as well as insights into the challenges of operating businesses within the ethical space. There will of course be substantial opportunities for debate and questioning as we examine the state and prospects of this rapidly growing segment of the financial services sector.
