Sustainability Week Goes Digital!

After twenty years of SW, in 2020 we had to cancel our flagship event due to the coronavirus pandemic. But our commitment with our clients and stakeholders remains. We have launched the Sustainability Week Platform to continue to engage virtually, provide knowledge resources and exchange experiences. Through this platform, we enable better clients, projects and markets through ESG risk management and opportunities. We learn from each other and serve as a catalyst for knowledge exchange throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

Our main areas of focus include:

  • Environmental and social risk management  
  • Corporate governance
  • Sustainable infrastructure and energy
  • Sustainable agriculture and tourism
  • Sustainable finance, supply chain and mobilization 
  • Stakeholder engagement and grievance redress.


Please continue to visit this website to stay up to date on new information and exchange.


About Sustainability Week

IDB Invest Sustainability Week (SW) is a forum for sharing experiences and developing knowledge networks.

SW started in 1999 as an annual training for clients. It is now the major knowledge event for the private sector, which brings together hundreds of participants and well-known leaders in environmental and social sustainability and governance in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Over the last two decades, clients have looked forward to these events as a way to engage with peers who face similar environmental and social challenges and to learn from others about how to convert these risks into opportunities.

SW promotes dialogue with a wide range of stakeholders and the dissemination of lessons and experiences. We foster relationships and exchange across sectors. We help clients find innovative solutions for a competitive advantage rooted on sustainable decisions.
