The Erasmus Platform for Sustainable Value Creation officially launched this week (September 17th) . The platform is a network of academia, corporates and other organizations all striving to foster thought leadership in the field of sustainable finance.
There is a growing need for new methods to incorporate sustainability into finance. Moreover, corporate governance is making a transition towards long-term value creation as the ultimate goal for corporates.
The platform: a hub to foster thought leadership
The Erasmus platform for sustainable value creation will provide a hub for a meaningful collaboration between the academic world and the financial industry. There are already several corporate partners and a dedicated group of experts participating in the platform and we have some exciting plans for the coming months.
We would like to take a moment to thank our partners. Without them, we would not have been able to set up this network and their input and ideas have been very important so far. Currently, we are working closely together with: Robeco, ABN AMRO, ASN Bank, Rabobank, MN and PGGM. Moreover, the platform is kindly supported by DNB, AFM, Reporting 3.0, Sustainable Finance Lab, True Price and VBDO.
