Long Finance: London Accord Spring Conference 2011: Peak Everything: Enough To Go Around?

Peak Everything: Enough To Go Around?

Established in 2007, Long Finance aims to improve society's understanding and use of finance over the long term by hosting and promoting a series of lectures, discussion events and research publications. The initiative began with a question - “when would we know our financial system is working?” - and seeks to challenge a financial system that revolves around short-term thinking and practices.

As of 2011, the London Accord is the sustainability arm of Long Finance, a unique collaboration among over 30 financial services organisations providing free access to an open resource of investment research on environmental, social & governance issues. Recognising that today’s extra financial and social issues are tomorrow’s key investment drivers, the London Accord acts as a nexus between the financial services industry and society to engage on long-term thinking about ESG issues, finance and policies.

The Long Finance-London Accord Spring Conference 2011, "Peak Everything: Enough To Go Around?", will explore the relationship between prosperity, resource scarcity and finance. The conference will take the form of a keynote speech, delivered by Professor Paul Ekins of the UCL Energy Institute, followed by two panel discussions - "Prosperity and Resource Scarcity - What Role Should Finance Play?" and "Finance, Biodiversity and Managed Ecosystems".
