Finance for Good

The HEC Paris event "Finance4Good" took place last September 29, 2016 on the campus.

The objective of this annual conference, organized by the SnO Center, together with professors, students and alumni association, was to mobilize the whole HEC Paris community and explore how finance, which of course plays an absolute key role in our global economy, can serve address the main challenges of our global society.

1000 people attended the several conferences.

Thanks to students from the HEC Paris Sustainability & Social innovation Master, 8 reports highlight the content of each conference, from the introduction by Michel Camdessus, former IMF managing director to the evening panel moderated by Martin Wolf from the Financial Times.

Please find below the different reports:

The introductory conference with Michel Camdessus: "Finance for good is more than a wish - it is a necessity"

The thematic conferences:

Finance4Good: Banking on Values

Finance4Good: Can finance change the world and eliminate poverty?

Finance4Good: Financing the transition to a low carbon economy

Finance4Good: No more banks?
