Scotland is Uniquely Positioned to host the Ethical Finance Narrative

Our vision for GEFI is to build upon our extensive experience and track record of organising practitioner-led events in Edinburgh to create a world-class annual “ethical finance week”. Our “Ethical Finance Week” is anchored by a two-day global conference in Edinburgh with a series of related activities and events taking place in the city before and after.

During this week we aim to convenes the world’s foremost business, political and societal leaders to network, share, co-develop and shape a fairer, more sustainable financial system.

By hosting the global debate in Scotland we offer a safe space to listen, learn and share our experience.
