These moves not only give a big boost to India's commitment at COP26 to reaching net-zero by 2070, but also achieve ambitious targets like 175 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity by this year."

"Inclusive economy and sustainable development are two of the most crucial demands of the 21st century.

Mr. Srinivas Jain, Member, GFF 2022 Advisory Board and ED & Head of Strategy, SBI Mutual Funds, points out, "In today's world it is imperative that sustainable finance is made the cornerstone of our investment decisions. In other words, all our long-term investment decisions must consider the ESG (economic, social, governance) factors. One important means of addressing this is fintech, and at GFF 2022 we will debate and discuss at length how best to achieve that."

"The catastrophic changes brought by the Covid pandemic in numerous spheres of our lives make it imperative that we put in the best efforts to further the agendas of inclusiveness and sustainability across the globe. In this context, the fintech and the financial services fraternity must innovate to build a sustainable, inclusive and climate-conscious financial world. At GFF 2022 we will deeply deliberate on this crucial issue," said Ms. Smita Aggarwal, Member GFF 2022 Advisory Board and Global Investment Advisor, Flourish Ventures.
