ESG issues, and diversity, are often cited by financial investors as key areas of focus when considering an investment. In fact, there are several funds that only invest in companies that can prove their ESG standards.
2020, with everything it entailed, from the black lives matter movement and the reduction in carbon dioxide emissions as a result of the coronavirus to an increased focus on wellbeing and diversity, seemed to accelerate the focus on these areas. Our sector focussed panel will discuss the importance of these areas both for companies and their Boards, but also for potential buyers and investors. Will agencies who are behind the curve on ESG and diversity struggle to attract buyers and financial investors? Audience participation will be welcomed.
