ESG: (Learn why ESG is) An Essential Investment Tool for Enhancing Risk/Return

The debate surrounding the use of ESG tools and information is clearly favouring ESG as a tool for lower risk and enhancing return.

In the live webinar, we explain why companies and investors need to be thinking about ESG and intangibles to enable better performance and will take questions on ESG topics.

We review;

* the latest academic evidence on why ESG adds value
* the latest frontiers of ESG, use of SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)
* debates on the imperfection of Sustainability Ratings and divestment campaigns
* stewardship codes and increasing regulatory interest in ESG

    · What ESG information investors are looking for and how they use it

    Veronique Erb & Dijana Jelic, RBC Global Asset Management (UK) Limited
    Discussing the changing vision of smart cities and addressing the reasons for the changes to our projections for electric vehicles and what this will mean for the industry.

    The term ‘smart city’ has had different meanings over the years and is a much broader concept than just innovative building projects. The development of information technology has enabled the growth of smart infrastructure, including the use of renewable building materials, electric transport and waste management. Smart cities are far more complex, however, and address the needs of city populations and the challenges they face. Nine out of ten cities in the emerging markets are due to become the world’s largest cities, and because of this rapid urbanisation smart city solutions are vital to improve the quality of life for the inhabitants of these cities and to provide economic growth.

    - Methods of valuing ESG
    - Benefits of applying ESG decision frameworks to your portfolios
    - How Pension funds look at potential investments
