Navigating the ESG Landscape
Please join us and NIRI-LA for this joint meeting for a panel discussion and luncheon to get different perspectives on what and how to think about ESG at your company. We will focus on the following topics and highlight different perspectives from the panelists to help guide your process as you further develop your ESG/Sustainability program:
- Overview of the ESG landscape: Why investors are interested and how ESG practices factor into their evaluation of company strategy and financial performance
- Overview of the hot topics of interest such as climate change, diversity and company culture
- Rating agencies and surveyors that monitor and report on ESG practices: Which ones matter and how much influence do they have?
- What are best-in-class companies doing in response to the growing interest in ESG? How does this influence their engagement on and disclosure of ESG practices?
We are excited to have the following panelists:
- Moderator: Anne Chapman, Managing Director at Joele Frank, Wilkinson Brimmer Katcher
- Megan Bloomer, Vice President of Sustainability, The Cheesecake Factory
- Chris Honorio, Senior Governance and Proxy Analyst, Capital Group
