Our annual Strategic Workshop on CSR will take place on 14-15 October 2019 in Ferrara, kindly hosted by ACER Ferrara, one of the 9 public housing providers operating in Emilia Romagna Region represented under the umbrella of our member CISPEL.
As you will see in further details in the programme, the workshop intends to address two main issues:
• After the first year (2019) of concrete implementation of the EU Directive on the disclosure of non-financial and diversity information (Directive 2014/95/EU), we will discuss how housing companies have dealt with and which lessons can be drawn from this first experience.
• The disclosure of non-financial information is closely related to the European Commission’s Action Plan on Sustainable Finance. The Commission is seeking ways for the finance sector and the investors to report on how their investments contribute to the achievement of the SDGs. During the meeting we will discuss how social and/or public housing companies can take advantage of this opportunity to get better financing and under what conditions (transparency, legibility, clarity, types of information…..).
Participation (Eurhonet members only) is free of charge but registration is compulsory. To ensure the smooth running of the event, please register via this online registration form (click here) by 15th September 2019 at the very latest.
