3rd Sustainable Investor Summit 2020
Sustainable Investor Summit 2020 postponed – but not cancelled! New date planned!
After the first travel restrictions became known at the beginning of March regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), ICF had hoped to be able to hold the Sustainable Investor Summit in May 2020. Unfortunately, we will not be able meet this date either!
In particular, the development of the last few days with exit restrictions and the closure of entire institutions gave us no other choice. In light of our agenda and the expertise of our speakers, we regret this decision, but we feel it is best for the safety of all participants.
However, we are deliberately speaking of a postponement, as we intend to hold the Sustainable Investor Summit later this year, taking into account further developments.
We would be very happy if we could count on your participation even if there is still an alternative date to be found.

Message from Conference Host
ICF Institutional Capital Forum, a division of IC Institutional Capital, organises conferences and events to enable professionals and businesses to grow and meet with likeminded people and industry peers.
In 2020, ICF organises the 3rd Sustainable Investor Summit. Sustainable and Impact Investing is growing rapidly in Austria and around the world. This growth reflects the need to finance social and environmental needs, but also an increasing desire by individuals and investors to use their capital to contribute to social and environmental challenges while generating a financial return.
There is a growing movement towards more responsible investing, which incorporates ESG considerations into investment decisions. Impact investing goes beyond avoiding harm and mitigating risks, as positive outcomes, which are beneficial to society or the environment are of the utmost importance. With it growing popularity, a key focus on sustainable and impact investing integrity will be needed. As the popularity of sustainable and impact investing grows exponentially, maintaining standards and integrity is key.
Key goals of the 3rd Sustainable Investor Summit are to boost investment and help to mobilise more capital across the spectrum of capital that can contribute to solutions for social and environmental challenges. ICF hopes that the conference will help contribute to the growth of a culture of sustainable social and environmental impact investing in Austria and beyond.
Whatever you choose to explore, to discover, to enjoy and to share with your fellow conference attendees, I am confident you will come to understand why everything rolls up into this compelling brand: Growing a culture of sustainable and impact investing in Austria.
We look forward to welcoming you at the 3rd Sustainable Investor Summit | Austria 2020.
