Research by the PRI finds that across the world’s 50-largest economies, there are now 400 policy instruments that require or encourage ESG integration across the intermediation chain – half of which were introduced in the last three years. Research by Mercer of over 900 European pension funds finds that ESG-related regulation is the number one driver for ESG integration.

ESG professionals are welcome to attend where they have policy responsibilities, or alongside their policy, regulatory or public affairs colleagues.
