Sustainable finance is one of the key topics of the 2021 edition of the WIW in light of its growing con­nection with the retail investor's world: on the one hand ESG investments may become the reference mainstream in the financial services sector in the near future (for political and social reasons), on the other hand it is crucia that any evo ution/development occurs in parallel l with a greater l awareness of thei r characteristics by retail investors.

Financial industry and regulators are fully involved in a process of transition to a sustainable economy that affects both developed and emerging countries. IOSCO worlcs in this area at different levels: Sustainable Task Force, Committee 8 on Retail Investors, G(Owth and Emerging Markets Committee.

The aim of the global webinar organized by Consob for the WlW 2021 is to record the state of the art and discuss developments in the sector, with a v ew to analyse the main implicat ons in terms of i investor protection and education.
