Amplifying the S in ESG: Investor Myth Buster

Presented by

The PRI, White & Case, SASB, ISFC, Illinois State Treasurer and Thomson Reuters Foundation

About this talk

In the world of ESG investing the integration of social performance assessment has seen insufficient progress over the years, and in consequence is plagued by many challenges and misconceptions. For this reason, the Thomson Reuters Foundation convened a group of organisations to form a Working Group, of which the PRI is a part, to work on dispelling the ‘myths’ around driving more sophisticated social performance assessments. This webinar will bring together representatives of the Working Group and endorsers to discuss the different ‘myths’, the real challenges in tackling the S of ESG but also providing clear next steps for investor action. Confirmed speakers: Fiona Reynolds, CEO, PRI Clare Connellan, Partner, White & Case Katie Schmitz Eulitt, Director of Investor Relationships, SASB Rekha Vaitla, Deputy Director, Illinois State Treasurer Linda Zeilina, Founder & CEO, International Sustainable Finance Centre (ISFC) Moderator: Giulia Corinaldi, Director of Inclusive Economies, Thomson Reuters Foundation
