IR, governance and sustainability professionals will gather to share their views and insights with their peers around expectations for ESG reporting and communications in today’s business environment.

‘Following on from the success of our Summer ESG Integration Forum & Awards, our ESG winter forum will address how companies can develop an integrated response to ESG expectations with a particular focus on preparing for the 2023 proxy season,’ says Laurence Taylor, senior conference producer at IR Magazine and Corporate Secretary.

‘This year, we’ll be looking at how geopolitical, economic and regulatory pressures are impacting ESG priorities globally, examining how the conversations around E, S and G are each progressing and debating the significance of the ‘anti-ESG’ movement on how public companies measure and communicate ESG information.’

For this event, IR Magazine and online sister publication Corporate Secretary have teamed up to deliver the only event that highlights key issues public companies need to be aware of to successfully manage shareholder expectations around ESG and put together efficient and measurable strategies that work for investors.

The top speakers confirmed to join us at the IR Magazine ESG Integration Forum – Europe are:

  • Rick Lacaille, global head of ESG at State Street

  • Juliette Faure, vice president for sustainable investing at BlackRock

  • Richard Adams, senior investment director at American Century Investments
