Sustainable Companies and ESG Investment Funds Symposium

Online Symposium – December 16th, 2020

With the growth in corporate responsibility efforts came an increasing number of questions about the extent to which mainstream investors value sustainability initiatives and whether they impact a company’s financial performance. The socially responsible investors started to focus on three main areas: Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance, and nowadays most of these investors incorporate ESG criteria into investment analysis based on the belief that ESG issues are a driver of financial returns. Since there are indications of a growing trend of ESG incorporation among mainstream investors, it is necessary to analyze how both green investment banks and sustainable companies seeking for funding adapt to this new scenario.

The Symposium, organized by IBS Americas, in association with public and private universities and foundations from Europe and the United States, is aimed at university students and young professionals with the objective of promoting debate on sustainability trends.
