Mariela Vargova, Senior ESG Analyst
How can companies and investors make a difference?
While “social” issues have always been a core of ESG investing, today we see a newly energised emphasis on matters of social and racial equity, diversity, labour issues and human rights. All these social equity issues enrich the traditional investment research and provide a new layer of critical analysis and engagement with our investee entities. What are the new responsibilities of corporations with respect to creating social equity for employees, customers and communities of operations? Why is the new social taxonomy important for investors and capital markets, and how can it drive long-term value creation? How can investors mitigate social risks and how should they think of incorporating social equity factors in investment processes?
Join us for a panel discussion where we'll explore the various perspectives of social equity, and ways of adding value to investments and society.
