Companies are under increasing risk of activism over ESG issues. While governance has always been a key focus for investors, environmental issues have rapidly climbed the agenda in recent years, especially those related to climate change. More recently, the Covid-19 pandemic has thrust attention on previously overlooked social issues, such as employee safety and welfare.
In this webinar, we will explore how institutional investors consider ESG factors in their engagement and proxy voting, with a particular focus on the continental European market. We will also hear from companies about how they manage investor engagement over ESG issues and what methods they are using to track and report progress in this area.
In this webinar you’ll hear:

  • How engagement differs depending on the ESG topic in question
  • Which issues investors are focused on in 2020, and expectations for next year
  • Case studies of successful engagement over ESG issues
  • How to use sustainable reporting frameworks to demonstrate progress against goals.

Speakers include:

Manuel Enrich, chairman of AERI (Spanish association for IR) and chief investor relations officer, AHORA Asset Management
Nuria Pascual, IRO & corporate VP – treasury & risk management, Grifols
Sèbastien Senegas, head of Southern Europe, Edmond de Rothschild AM
