Sustainable Investment Forum Europe 2020 Postponed

We deeply regret having to inform you that we have taken the extremely difficult decision to postpone the Sustainable Investment Forum Europe 2020  that was due to take place on 10th March in Paris.

New dates will be announced as soon as possible. This very difficult decision has been made in response to the growing concerns around Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Measures to contain the virus in France were stepped up within a 48-hours period (3-4 March), around 100 schools have been closed in the worst affected areas and many businesses have issued travel bans on all non-essential travel not only in France but globally. The number of Coronavirus cases in France continues to rise as health authorities reported on Wednesday 4 March a total of 257 confirmed cases since the outbreak began in January – up by 45 since Tuesday 3 March total of 212.  Furthermore, the World Health Organisation (WHO) reported on Wednesday 4 March that the mortality rate for COVID-19 3.4% globally, higher than previous estimates of about 2%.

After consultation with as many of the event stakeholders as possible, we placed the health and safety of all attendees and their families first and we believe it is in everyone’s best interest to postpone the Forum.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this change may cause.

Please do not hesitate to contact our team should you have questions.
