Laudato Si’ (On Care for our Common Home), published by Pope Francis in June 2015, was a love letter to all mankind and an urgent call to tackle the global human and ecological crisis. Receiving an enthusiastic reception from the ecology community, both in and outside the Catholic Church, it found a more muted response from business and enterprise. We therefore have practical work to do in complementing Francis’ powerful and inspiring summons.Increasingly, data shows that the majority of investors want their assets to have a positive impact on society. This event will focus minds on what the finance and enterprise sectors can do, and are already doing, to be part of the global solution to inequality and climate change, while still delivering good returns. We hope this event will encourage and inspire, inform and nourish people of good will across the sector.
