This initiative, which is supported by the Swiss Confederation, aims to bring together an unprecedented coalition between the financial community and representatives of Geneva International, federal, cantonal and municipal authorities aiming to bridge the world of finance and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations in order to maximize their impact.  Switzerland aims to use Building Bridges to promote tangible action thanks to a mutual understanding between all players in sustainable finance: banks, investors, governments, companies, the United Nations and civil society. Thanks to its unique ecosystem, Geneva has a special role to play in building these bridges and accelerating the implementation of Agenda 2030 by means of increased responsible investment. The week featured 31 events, organised and supported by 52 partners. The summit brought together some 800 decision-makers and high ranked thought leaders.
