In January Alliance MBS hosted a Vital Topics event with keynote speaker Sacha Sadan (Director of Investor Stewardship at LGIM) arguing that ESG was now in the mainstream.
3 weeks later the Coronavirus crisis happened.
So, in a world dealing with a major pandemic and heading towards a global recession, is ESG still relevant?
Our experts argue that COVID-19 has shown exactly why a focus on environmental, social and governance factors is vital for all stakeholders (shareholders, employees and customers) but that history also shows us why we should employ professional scepticism when business leaders talk about ‘business purpose’ and specific ESG elements.
Our webinar will look at what we can learn from history, where we need to employ ‘caveat emptor’ (buyer beware), what needs to change and where the opportunities lie for the future.
