Investors operate in an increasingly complex environment characterized by growing political instability, the global rise of populism and the increasingly visible impacts of climate change. These systemic risks create uncertainty for investors, which could jeopardize returns and impact long-term growth.
The event will explore some of the key ESG trends and how they connect, in particular to topics such as inequality, executive pay and incorporating the social dimension of the transition to a low-carbon economy.
Speakers will address ways investors can respond to these and actively engage both with regulators and investee companies. It will also be an opportunity for investors to share their views and existing practice on how to best tackle the challenges associated with these issues, and seize the opportunities by scaling up action.
Please note that in order to allow as many representatives to attend as possible, we may limit attendance to a maximum of 2 per organisation.
