    Webinar

    Increasing demand for sustainable investment that goes beyond ethical screening to ensure investments are directed at those that incorporate SDGs, mitigate climate change or offer other sustainability, impact or positive societal or environmental change is changing many approaches to investment. Corporates are accessing new forms of finance as part of their overall business strategy based on environmental sustainability, while investors and financial advisors are incorporating ESG into the central investment proposition.

    Join us for this event where we will discuss the real return-based benefits of sustainable investing and what leading investors look for when sourcing investment opportunities, as well as what impact-focused businesses are doing and how they ensure that they are attractive to sustainably focused investors. We will also look ahead to what is next in the changing global reporting standards, and the challenges that this may bring to businesses.

    Chaired by Matthew Kirk, international affairs advisor, we will be joined by:

    • Phoebe Stone, Head of Sustainable Investing, LGT Vestra
    • Tim Ellis, Head of Origination, Bboxx
    • Steven Ward, Partner, Financial Services, Squire Patton Boggs
    • Julian Thatcher, Partner, Corporate, Squire Patton Boggs
