ESG: From trend to action

There is a rapidly growing trend of increased engagement around environmental, social and governance factors between public companies and their shareholders, plus more expectations placed on ESG reporting and disclosures, and it isn’t going away!

That’s why IR Magazine and Corporate Secretary magazine have teamed up, to help governance and investor relations professionals in public companies take action when responding to these growing expectations from shareholders.

The event will feature discussions between the Buyside, Heads of IR, Governance, Risk and Compliance professionals which aim to understand the latest trends in ESG and provide practical advice on how companies can take action to future-proof your business, ensure a smoother proxy season and add more value to shareholders.

Key themes and topics

Whatever stage you are at on your ESG journey, join us to understand about the latest ESG trends and learn how you can take action and improve relationships with your investors, futureproof your business, discover new investors and ensure a smooth proxy season and AGM.

Some of the themes and topics being discussed include:

  • How are the roles of security market regulators and exchanges evolving in this area?
  • The impact consolidation of ESG rating agencies will have on the quality of data investors use to analyze ESG risks
  • What governance and IR teams need to know about proxy advisor reforms and potential disruption to AGMs and shareholder rights
  • How to prioritize and focus efforts on addressing the most relevant ESG risks impacting your business
  • Move from shareholder engagement to shareholder value
  • Prepare for the next proxy season and learn how shareholder activism is changing
  • Participate in separate roundtable discussions on governance, social and environmental factors, and what you can do to influence the company strategy and future-proof your business
