Please join DWS's ESG TALKS webinar series where Michael Lewis, Head of ESG Thematic Research will discuss current issues impacting responsible and sustainable investing. Michael will be joined by ESG experts externally and from across the DWS platform incorporating all asset classes and business lines.

There are six stages in a transformational investment according to the WEF (Understand, Collaborate, Design, Invest, Transform, Monitor). If our understanding of the risk is now clear, we still face significant challenges to translate the risk in an opportunity because of the ‘fragmented nature’ of water risk. The objective of this webinar is about examining the second stage, ‘collaboration’, and how to ensure that investments in water risk go beyond a risk management approach, but actually make a difference.
About the participants:
CERES was amongst the first NGOs to highlight water risk and works with some of the biggest companies in the world to improve their water stewardship. In 2020, Mindy Lubber received the ‘Champions of the Earth’ award – the highest environmental honour from the United Nations.
DWS has a 25+ year track record in responsible investing, across all asset classes and regions and is now working with multiple stakeholders to drive a transformational framework for water risk
