Watch: regenerative finance

August 27th, 2021

Investing for a better future, with Bank Australia.

Event Description

What if money was used as a tool to tackle the complex social and environmental challenges we currently face? This is the idea behind regenerative finance, a new financial paradigm that uses money as a means to drive positive systems change.  

Bank Australia is working to accelerate the regenerative finance movement here in Australia with impact investments that support renewable energy, conservation and affordable housing projects. The company is a customer-owned, carbon neutral, B Corporation that refuses to invest in environmentally damaging industries such as fossil fuels and live animal exports.   

In this free 45-minute session Darren Dawson, Head of Impact Finance at Bank Australia, explains the role of finance in a regenerative, circular economy and how both businesses and individuals can get involved. You will learn: 

  • What regenerative finance is, with real-world examples of projects that generate social and environmental benefits. 

  • The basics of impact investing and banking, including how to define impact values and measure impact. 

  • How you can implement the principles of regenerative finance in your own banking or investment activities, whether you are a business owner, investor or borrower.
