Nezhla Mehmed, LL.M., Corporate Governance Specialist, & Michael Lewis, Head of ESG Thematic Research, DWS
Please join us every week for our 'DWS ESG TALKS' webinar series where Michael Lewis, Head of ESG Thematic Research, will be discussing the current issues impacting ESG. He will be joined by DWS ESG experts across the platform incorporating all asset classes and business lines.
On Wednesday 10th June, Michael will be joined by Nezhla Mehmed, an ESG Specialist in the Corporate Governance Center at DWS. Together they will explore why and how investor action on climate risk needs to be taken to the next level. Stewardship and active ownership have become central in the world of investments and being a responsible investor, once a niche area, is becoming essential and ultimately a licence to operate from a fiduciary perspective. As we are battling COVID-19, we realise just how vulnerable our global capital market is to unexpected developments and how we need to act together to address a common issue, whether a global disease or climate change.
_The urgency of the climate crisis and how Covid-19 might invigorate action and change investing forever
- How regulatory developments are increasingly fostering long-termism
- Stewardship creates added value not only in qualitative but also in quantitative terms, and it is becoming an important driver for asset manager selection
- Are investors doing enough: the need to focus on relevant areas in evaluating progress of companies’ climate policies
