Stakeholders need to survive, and these stakeholders are represented in ESG. The current pandemic is highlighting this fact with significant E, S and G related decisions being made daily including everything from executive pay, dividends and share buybacks, to employee healthcare, employee lay-offs, and even food insecurity.
It is no wonder that companies and investors who are further along their ESG journey have fared better in recent weeks and are forecast to do so over the coming months and into the recovery period. There can be no doubt of the materiality of ESG and the need for all investors to understand the practical steps involved in incorporating ESG factors into decision-making.
I strongly believe that throughout this difficult period, the ESG conversation needs to continue down the practical path which has seen its resonance extend into the mainstream. To this end, we, Reuters Events, have assembled the exclusive insights of industry leaders: SASB, Boston Consulting Group, UBS, Oliver Wyman, CERES, Inter-American Development Bank, Emerging Markets Investor Alliance, Sustainable Governance Partners, NDC Partnership.
