The second edition of the Malta Sustainability Forum (MSF) came to an end on Friday 29th January, following five days of insightful keynotes and panel discussions. More than 1200 participants attended the 16 hours of live transmission (now available online on APS Bank’s YouTube Channel) that brought together an extensive list of 83 speakers (including 55% women and 30% international), covering a variety of the themes around sustainability.

APS Bank, proud organiser of the Forum, is pleased with the reach and momentum gained on the theme ‘The Time is Now’ during and post event. Thanks to the exciting line-up of thought-leaders and change makers, the MSF went beyond giving a better understanding of the challenges the world is facing on its journey to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, but also provided solutions and different perspectives that could be applied to Malta.

Hervé Delpech, Chief Strategy Office at APS Bank concluded that, “People and organisations have realised the future can be changed and that they can be part of it if they ACT NOW. As the community bank, we believe it is our role to help educate and engage the public to safeguard our planet and work towards creating a more sustainable future.”
