What is the Sustainathon all about?

Centered on the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, participants will be asked to assess and identify achievable and impactful steps that the Irish funds industry can implement - the proposed solutions could relate to product innovations, new platforms for engagement, corporate initiatives, use of technologies, or other ideas.
