ESG takes center stage—Access to capital and the importance of environmental, social and governance matters

The current pandemic has reminded us all of society’s fragility and its vulnerability to disruption. We have learned many things in the past 18 months – in particular, that our global marketplace is indeed interconnected and we all have a role to ensure long-term sustainability. That is why ESG criteria have become a top priority for many investors and portfolio managers when it comes to investment decision-making. Financial institutions are focusing on the further expansion of ESG finance and the integration of ESG perspectives into loans and other debt products. Join us in this session as we explore why stakeholders, including financiers, investors and government, are pushing environmental, social and governance issues to the top of the corporate agenda.
