Financing4impact: Integrating ESG in your company strategy

Financial institutions shape our future when they decide which projects, initiatives, and businesses to finance. Organizations increasingly face a world of radical digital transparency where corporate behavior is instantaneously tracked and scrutinized globally; employees search for organizations with an impact, and shareholders demand firms become more purposeful. How firms create and capture value is becoming as important as their profits.

There is also increasing awareness that sustainability issues have sizeable financial impacts on companies. Sustainable investors believe that environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria can have a material impact on company performance.

Participants in this Discovery Event will learn how to understand the benefits and challenges of integrating ESG issues into investment analysis/decisions, as well as in corporate strategy.

Outcomes:

During two half-days, participants will have an opportunity to reflect on:

  • How sustainable business models drive improved performance
  • How sustainable finance and ESG investing create opportunities for risk management and improved performance
  • What impacts ESG activist investors can have on a business
  • How impact investment can help fill the financing gap to drive innovative market solutions that address social and environmental challenges

Target audience:

Finance, CSR, strategy and corporate engagement, investments, sustainable impact, ESG
