2019 was a watershed year for corporate responsibility as the Business Roundtable, a selection of CEOs from the world’s largest companies, issued a statement which reframed the long held notion of corporate purpose as exclusively focussed on shareholder return to instead focus on generating long-term value for a range of stakeholders including customers, employees, suppliers, communities and the environment.
Equally, investors around the world are increasingly placing sustainability at the heart of their investment strategies, with the CEO of the world’s largest investment management firm BlackRock noting last month that ‘we are on the edge of a fundamental reshaping of finance… a company cannot achieve long-term profits without embracing purpose and considering the needs of a broad range of stakeholders.’
We are pleased to invite you to the first event of our Impact 2020 series focussed on the growing environmental, social and governance (ESG) megatrends and how business is executing this shift from shareholders to stakeholders. Join us to hear from our speakers on how they are meeting this revaluation and placing purpose at the centre of strategic planning.
We have an exceptional speaker line-up including:
Nathan Fabian, Chief Responsible Investment Officer, Principles for Responsible Investment
James Upton, Head of ESG Engagement, BHP
Marta Jankovic, Director, EMEA Head of iShares Sustainable, BlackRock
Bill Hartnett, ESG Stewardship Director, Aberdeen Standard Investments
Emma Cox, Head of Sustainability & Climate Change/Head of Purpose, PwC
Don’t miss this timely and crucial discussion on the major changes that ESG is driving across business and capital and how businesses are responding.
