It was great to engage actively with so many stakeholders from the finance and investment sectors at the CGFI Forum 2024. IFB Flagship Leaders Nicola Ranger and Richard Field were present along with Theme Leaders Jo Chamberlain and Franziska Schrodt. NERC was represented by Shewly Chowdhury and Ashleigh Sladen. The IFB stand was a hive of activity before and after each session, and a number of new and very welcome contacts were made.
