Even before the coronavirus outbreak, more investors were looking at companies through the lens of environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices. But now, corporate decisions on human capital, customers and society during the COVID-19 pandemic will carry greater weight. As companies face greater scrutiny during the crisis, ESG factors will now be a key layer of diligence in evaluating an investment.
Join us for a joint webinar in collaboration with Black Sun, as we discuss ESG in a post-COVID-19 world, and how investors view responsible investment and ESG.
At this event we will discover:
· What ESG information investors are looking for and how they use it
· Understand how high quality ESG disclosure will allow for better comparisons and improved understanding for all stakeholders
· How ESG disclosure should also enhance decision-making and company performance in the long-term
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.

The ideal retirement or pension fund starts the drawdown phase only after decades of savings. Similarly, many benefits of ESG become more easily recognisable after multiple quarters or years. This long-term scope conflicts with wall street's penchant for quarterly earnings. Should short-term investors be thinking more like long-term investors? This webinar will discuss:
- Methods of valuing ESG
- Benefits of applying ESG decision frameworks to your portfolios
- How Pension funds look at potential investments
Moderated by - Veronica Broomes, CSR and Sustainability Consultant

Panel of responsible investing experts from RBC Global Asset Management
Adoption of responsible investing principles continues to grow at a steady pace. And new data indicates that the majority of institutional investors and consultants have shifted from asking whether to adopt environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles to instead looking at how to implement them.
RBC Global Asset Management’s 2018 Responsible Investing Survey reveals the latest views, intentions and actions of institutional investors and consultants related to responsible investing and ESG. The survey reveals that ESG-based investing continued to steadily gain credibility and establish a solid position alongside other fundamental investment approaches. This trend is based on an increased level of acceptance about the merits of responsible investing, and an interest in applying its principles to more diverse asset classes, including fixed income and infrastructure.
Please join us to learn results of this year’s survey and discuss the implications and impacts for institutional investors and the marketplace.
