Highlights from a recent ESG conference where sustainability leaders and asset managers discussed key ESG topics as part of focused panels and presentations.
In a new podcast, Debbie Jones, Global Head of ESG Company Research and Brian Bedell, Lead Research Analyst, US Asset Managers, discuss the highlights from a recent ESG conference where sustainability leaders and asset managers discussed key ESG topics as part of focused panels and presentations. This included sessions on global sustainability regulation, ESG trends & integration, diversity & inclusion and biodiversity.
 
Key highlights:
  •  Asset managers report demand for sustainable investing is rising rapidly.
  • Increasing regulation will support reallocation of capital to sustainable investing.
  • The US is behind, but the SEC and the Federal Reserve have signalled a positive direction of travel.
  • Corporates outside of Europe, who want access to capital in the region, will face EU sustainability regulation
  • The qualitative aspect of ESG analysis is underappreciated.
  • Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) is a movement and not a moment.
  • The focus on "E" often ignores biodiversity, but this is changing.
