Transition Time

The NordicSIF 2024 Conference takes a closer look at the challenges and opportunities we face during the transition to a net-zero economy as well as the hard dilemmas that investors, asset managers, and lenders will face aligning with the transition.

Among others we will have a look at sustainable investments in a global perspective, the role of the financial services industry and what Norway and the Nordics can do to contribute to the global transition. We will dive into the energy transition and look at the opportunities and the new green industries that are developing the solutions we need to suceed.
