REGISTRATION IS OPEN for the 2019 CR Speaker Series Event.
Publicly traded companies are increasingly inundated with requests to publish environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data. The most influential requests are coming from organizations that directly participate in financial markets. These can include large asset owners (CalPERS, NY State), asset managers (BlackRock, State Street, Neuberger Berman) and specialized ESG research firms (Bloomberg, MSCI, Sustainalytics).
Institutional customer demand for ESG information is rippling through entire supply chains, thereby impacting suppliers that are both publicly traded or privately held.
In the second webinar in AIAG’s 2019 Corporate Responsibility Speaker Series, 60% of attendees indicated via poll they would like to hear from an asset owner/investor to learn how they use ESG information. Responding to that interest, AIAG is hosting an in-person session with members of the investment community. In this panel discussion, hear initial research findings on investor perspectives of ESG ratings and learn the approaches asset managers/investors take to evaluate ESG information to inform their investment decisions.
