IIGCC is pleased to partner with the FT on their event: FT Investing for Good Europe, which takes place 20th May 2020 in London. The title of the event is ‘Mainstreaming ESG: Mapping the next stage of the journey’.
The context to the conference, and details of discounted rates for IIGCC members is below.
Environmental, social and governance investing reached a tipping point in 2019. It hit the mainstream, with earning calls from leading companies in multiple sectors routinely referencing sustainability efforts, global asset managers commenting on the growth of the ESG assets under management, and asset owners putting more emphasis than ever on their appetite for responsible investing. As it becomes clearer that the costs of inaction may become higher than the costs of acting now, the challenge in 2020 and the decade ahead is keep the momentum going. What is required to take the next step, to make the fundamental changes needed to deliver the SDGs by 2030, and to get to a point where responsible investing becomes simply investing.
The event organised by the Financial Times brings together asset owners and asset managers, policy makers and advisors, data providers and analysts, to plot the next stage of the ESG journey for the world of investment.
A number of IIGCC members, and IIGCC CEO, Stephanie Pfeifer will be speaking at the event.
