FII 6th Edition, Invest in Humanity: Enabling a New Global Order
October 2022
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

THEME FOR 2022

As the pandemic recedes from our collective consciousness—and as a war in Europe upends long-established power structures—the world begins to get a clearer sense of large-scale dynamics that will define the next century and beyond.

Welcome to the New Global Order


The New Global Order faces unprecedented challenges just as it dissolves distinctions between the physical world and the virtual world. It is redefining what it means to be human. It is forcing centuries-old concepts like art and money to be reconceived on the blockchain. And it is enabling a new generation of space entrepreneurs to expand the boundaries of the known universe.

Will this new global order ignite investments and innovations to solve the wealth gap? Will it inspire businesses and governments to deliver high-quality healthcare, education, and jobs for all? Will it enable sustainable investments to solve the energy crisis, while empowering new engines of economic growth? Will it optimize the potential of our youth? And will it inspire every person, company, institution, and government on the planet to invest in humanity?

IMMERSIVE SUMMITS

FII6 SUMMIT: THE NEW ENERGY ECONOMY

The war in Ukraine has upended the global energy economy, clearing the way for new ideas and partnerships. How will this reconfiguration of energy supplies change the sector and global energy supply chains? What will the global energy crunch mean for net-zero objectives and the advance of renewables? Which new energy leadership will emerge?

FII6 SUMMIT: CLASH OF GENERATIONS

Rising generations of employees are expressing vastly different expectations than previous generations—for financial compensation, work-life balance, flexible office hours, political activism, and more. How will young employees and senior business leaders strike a balance for the greater good of companies, economies, and the planet? How are younger business leaders displacing old norms and creating new workplace cultures and expectations?

INTRODUCTION

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing has become one of the most important forces in global business today, with ESG assets slated to reach USD $53 trillion by 2025, comprising a third of global AUM. While new frameworks and rating mechanisms continue to proliferate, there are still many outstanding questions about how to effectively implement ESG in emerging markets each with their own specific economic, social, and cultural dynamics. As global businesses and investors seek to urgently align sustainability with financial performance focused on new economic and environmental priorities, there are many competing perspectives on how to approach these issues.

A PLAN OF ACTION

During this critical time, the Future Investment Initiative (FII) Institute has set out to develop a more direct, robust road map for the future of ESG, particularly in emerging markets. To support this important work, the Institute will convene a community of Global Heads of Sustainability, ESG, and Stewardship; CEOs; government officials; social innovators; thought leaders; and other experts to engage in vital conversations that will shape the future of the global ESG agenda, and support investors with the tools and knowledge to drive sustainable, alpha-generating investment strategies.

A ROADMAP FOR ESG IN EMERGING MARKETS

Leveraging its THINK, XCHANGE, and ACT platforms, the Institute aims to: (1) increase awareness of the shortcomings of current ESG standards and their impact on global sustainability; (2) advocate for an inclusive and equitable application of ESG; and (3) bring together key stakeholders to improve implementation globally. We expect this effort to unite the global community in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and encourage international investment.

Alongside the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), this hybrid event on the topic of “Health is Wealth” will convene the world’s most prominent governmental and corporate leaders to address the pressing issues of today: the future of health, pandemic responses, biotechnology, and more. COVID-19 has transformed the world as we know it: the global economy shrunk by approximately 4%, mobility came to an abrupt standstill, millions of people were pushed into extreme poverty, and weaknesses in our global health systems were harshly exposed. Amidst the extreme challenges experienced by the world over the past year and a half, the pandemic has propelled global leaders forward toward finding solutions to these complex issues. Now is the moment to charter a path toward more equitable, sustainable, and resilient health systems.
