4. Sustainable Investor Summit Frankfurt

September 29, 2021, Marriott Hotel Frankfurt

Presentation of the conference

The “Sustainable Investor Summit” is an industry event in the German-speaking DACH region on the topic of sustainability and impact investing. The conference, which is already in its fourth year, has become a must for professional and institutional investors from the insurance and utilities sector, church sponsors, family offices, foundations, asset managers, decision makers from companies and many others in this segment. Intensive knowledge transfer, exchange of information and experience as well as networking beyond the conference are clear goals for all participants. The conference is certified as climate neutral. All charges for travel etc. will be fully offset by the support of environmental and climate projects.

Sustainability is the most important trend for investors. They are looking for ways to invest in a socially responsible way (SRI) or to assume social responsibility as a company (CSR). In terms of content, sustainability and impact and the related environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects and their “impact” are the recurring themes on the corporate and investor side.

The importance of Sustainability & Impact Investing is growing rapidly and continues to gain momentum. Corporations have changed their behavior over the past decades. Institutional and private investors are increasingly aligning their portfolios with climate and environmental considerations. Social criteria and issues of responsible corporate governance also play an important role.


Book now and benefit of the early bird rate of EUR 250,00 plus VAT until 31 July 2021. Attend as an investor for free! Free for pension funds, insurance companies, family offices, endowments, foundations and sovereign wealth funds, subject to qualification.

Sustainability is the most important trend for investors. They are looking for ways to invest in a socially responsible way (SRI) or to assume social responsibility as a company. The content on the corporate and investor side consistently focuses on sustainability and impact and the environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects associated with it, as well as its "impact".

Increasing dynamics
Increasing momentum


Covid-19 has created a social and economic crisis and caused a slowdown in progress on the SDGs, but the response represents an opportunity to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable economy. Climate change requires all actors to understand the socioeconomic and financial risks of climate change and to consider business decisions with a focus on avoiding those risks.

Sustainable investment is not detrimental to returns, but actually has a positive effect. This is the conclusion reached by numerous studies, such as those conducted by the University of Lausanne, the Bertelsmann Foundation, Arabesque Asset Management/Oxford University, Harvard University and the University of Hamburg/DWS, to name just a few.

Highlights of the last conference

“The pricing mechanism of the market has terribly gone wrong over the past three decades and led to allocations of capital into fossil fuel assets with immense negative climate impact that never should have happened.”
Young-jin Choi, Head of Impact Investing, PHINEO

“There are a lot of unknowns in the transition of transport to sustainability so it is hard to predict what is, or will be, ‘best’. It is fair to say that EVs have come a long way and will almost certainly have a bright future, while the role for hydrogen in transport is less certain.”
Rick Walters, Director Infrastructure, GRESB

“ESG and socially responsible investments typically include stocks which score well on those dimensions. The business activities of the included companies typically do not matter unless they appear on exclusion lists. Impact investments want to improve the world and are mostly oriented towards the 17 sustainable development goals of the United Nations.”
Prof. Dr. Dirk Söhnholz, CEO, Diversifikator

“Gender lens investing gives remarkable productivity, is a performance enhancer and risk mitigator.”
Hedda Pahlson-Moller, Chief Catalyst, TIIME
