ESG and sustainability was one of the business buzzwords in 2019 and during this year is becoming mainstream. ESG related investments are now estimated at over US$ 30 trillion and so far, the outbreak of the COVID-19 has not stopped the growth of ESG investing, which has seen a steady increase in inflows and better-than-average returns since the start of the pandemic. Besides investors this topic is also high on the agenda of regulators, boards, media, politicians and the general public.
To address this (emerging) risk most large companies (financial and non-financial services) started multi-disciplinary projects.
In this event we will share:
- Practical examples on how companies are addressing this topic
- What is the role and impact of Risk Management in these projects
