By Cerise SDG Lab, in collaboration with the e-MFP Investors Action Group and SPTF.
On September 13th and 20th, 2022, Cerise SDG Lab hosted two webinars with investors and financial service providers to discuss the way to harmonize and push for outcomes management.
Both workshops will contribute toward a minimum set of standard indicators to collect outcomes data that would support financial institutions’ strategic and operational decision-making and ease the reporting to the various investors. Discussions will help to prepare standard indicators to be collected on SPI Online, to produce “Sustainability/Outcomes” reports, aligned with the SDGs. We share speakers’ presentations and Zoom replays below.
