SDG #5: Gender Equality in 2018: The Impact on Investments

SDG #5: Gender Equality in 2018: The Impact on Investments

BrightTalk’s “SDG Webinar Series 2019” in partnership with #NSFMNextGen provides environmental, social and governance (ESG) research, insights and best practices from leading experts in industry and academia - across markets, asset classes, and the entire investment value chain.

The 17 U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), a leading framework for sustainability issues, serve as our roadmap to identify, classify, measure and benchmark key issues. The SDG #5 webinar kick starts the series, and provides insights on diversity, female empowerment and inclusion strategies and tactics.

Our expert speakers are leading researchers, corporate executives and product experts who will share their top down / bottom up perspectives on how diversity risks and opportunities can be identified, evaluated and benchmarked – at a corporate and at a portfolio level.

Speakers from MSCI and Thomson Reuters will provide unique insights into how their analysis as well as best inclusion practices have changed the role of females both in the workforce and as investment decision makers. Meanwhile, SSGA will share research and product insights and share a “tone from the top” view on how the #FearlessGirl campaign has influenced companies across the globe to increase the gender diversity on their boards.

  • Investing in Sustainable Growth, Innovation and Green Jobs Recorded: Apr 23 2019 64 mins
    Andreas Hoepner | Sean Kindney | Elena Philipova | Martina Macpherson | Theodor Cojoianu
    Are you a seasoned professional wondering how EU sustainable finance regulation is likely to impact the investment and business sectors, a student or an early career professional thinking about securing current or upcoming green job opportunities, a policy-maker or a global citizen concerned about achieving long term sustainable growth and development goals in line with SDG 8 - then this webinar is the right choice for you.
    One of the most prominent legislative efforts recently towards shaping opportunities towards a prosperous, inclusive and low carbon world is the European Commission’s Action Plan for Sustainable Finance. Sustainable Finance is the key cornerstone in the business side of climate change mitigation, as two of the best strategies to change corporations are 1) 'creating incentives for the 'financing of green activities' and 2) 'de-funding' those companies which insist to extract, process and/or burn fossil fuels against the evidence that by doing so exacerbates the dangerous effects of climate change . But, creating the right framework for Sustainable Finance to flourish is complicated and that's why the EC first called a High-Level Expert Group (HLEG) and now a Technical Expert Group (TEG) to support its work.

    The impact of such legislative efforts is expected to be profound across both the business and investment space, as both a risk to unsustainable business practices and an opportunity for those who innovate towards the achievement of sustainable innovation and growth.

    Panel:
    Prof. Andreas Hoepner, Full Professor of Operational Risk, Banking and Finance, University College Dublin and EU TEG Member.
    Sean Kindney, CEO, Climate Bonds Initiative and EU HLEG and TEG Member.
    Elena Philipova, Global Head of ESG, Refinitiv and EU TEG Member.
    Martina Macpherson, President, Network for Sustainable Financial Markets.
    Moderated by Theodor Cojoianu, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University College Dublin & Academic-in-Residence, Sustainable Nation Ireland.
