Frankfurt School of Finance & Management participated in the Annual Meeting of the Asian Development Bank in Frankfurt from May 2 to 4, 2016. Germany hosted the conference for the first time. Ministers of Finance, heads of central banks and around 3.000 other delegates gathered to discuss developments in Asia and the Pacific as well as institutional matters. Under the theme "Cooperating for Sustainability", the meeting enabled finance and development professionals to exchange ideas and achieve tangible results.
Angela Merkel, chancellor of Germany, officially opened the conference and took a tour through the “City of Sustainability”, an interactive exhibition, where Frankfurt School had a booth as well. Frankfurt School was presenting the FS-UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate & Sustainable Energy Finance and selected projects of its International Advisory Services in an interactive way: Visitors were able to rebuild statistics on Renewable Energy investments with Lego, produce their own strawberry shake with the energy generated by pedaling on a bike or take part in an online-quiz.
Professor Dr Ulf Moslener, Professor for Sustainable Energy Finance and Head of Research of the UNEP Centre at Frankfurt School, and Martin Cremer, deputy head of the FS-UNEP Centre participated in a panel event on Global Trends in Renewable Energy Investments.
