    • Landscape and taxonomy of impact investing – differentiating ESG vs impact investing vs Green Bond Principles vs Sustainability Linked Loans, among other investing options
    • Lessons from investors, their financing partners and advisors – how do the UN SDGs and other guidelines inform metrics, how can metrics be improved, and potential for a future standardized measurement system 
    • Critical challenges and opportunities currently facing impact & sustainability investments and trends influencing pipeline and perception
