Sustainable investments have seen a rise in recent years with a growing number of funds to back green companies and to divest from fossil-fuel product portfolios. This can offer entrepreneurs in the bioeconomy opportunities.

The growth of green finance seems certain to continue as many governments worldwide focus on how to cut pollution and greenhouse gases and more regulators require companies to disclose climate-related risks—leading to more data showing which companies are most exposed and better insight about how to make money while saving the planet. The thematic spectrum of sustainable finance is still very broad with low requirements on fixed definitions, thus ranging from pollution-free energy to strict ethical policies.

In the Next free EFIB webinar, Rob van der Meij of Capricorn Partners moderates a discussion about the role of bio-based innovation within this sustainability debate in the finance sector, how investors value this topic and if COVID-19 changed the agendas.


The EFIB dialogues on sustainability after COVID-19 is a series of monthly webinars until the 5-Day digital EFIB Conference will be held on 5-9 October 2020. EFIB is the market leading annual event in Europe for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bioeconomy, organised by EuropaBio and Biocom. Registration for this event is open.

Participation in the dialogue webinars is free of charge, but registration is required. Coming topics are Financing & Investing, Materials & Packaging and Bioprocesses & Technologies.
