As ESG/Sustainability integrate into business strategy, institutional investors need to be updated on its impact on shareholder value. Still not fully a part of earnings calls or roadshows, IR executives are seeking the input of ESG/sustainability experts in how to best present the value proposition of ESG/sustainability and how it affects company performance. Gain insights into how IR executives may best engage with ESG/Sustainability leaders in preparing for earnings calls and in building the value case for investors.

Topics of discussion include:

  • ESG and Value Creation: Building the Performance Case for Investors
  • Investor Relations: Obstacles & Opportunities in Integrating ESG into Communications About Performance
  • The Disclosure Quagmire: Is Disclosing ESG related performance a Violation of Fiduciary Responsibility?
  • Shareholder Engagement: How to Manage an Activist Advance over an ESG Matter
  • The S and the E of ESG: Is Data the Challenge?
  • A Common Language Between IR and ESG/Sustainability Executives: What’s Missing?
