An SDG Framework for the Post-COVID19 Recovery: Implications for Investors
The economic response to the Covid19 pandemic has seen the establishment of state aid programmes worldwide. Analysing the characteristics of the state aid programmes it becomes apparent that the vast majority relies solely on financial criteria, disregarding non-financial factors. But what about the time after Covid19 – the recovery? Internationally the concept of a ‘green recovery’ is starting to gain traction, inter alia driven by the EU commission’s promise for the recovery to be green. Analysing the current situation this webinar will discuss how the post-COVID19 recovery could be reimagined to address the public debate around a ‘green recovery’ and how ESG factors used in non-COVID19 state aid could work as a model.
