ES&G Forum 2014: Non-financial performance... A missed opportunity?

September 23, 2014 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada

This year, the ES&G Forum will start with an overview of relevant research on the topic from a joint initiative (entitled ‘Focusing Capital on the Long Term’) between McKinsey Company and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) in which they conducted an international survey of corporate directors and CEOs. The objective was to understand these corporate decision-makers’ views on the need for long-term value creation and to identify causes and risks of short-termism in the markets and in business.

Sharing key learnings gained by this joint initiative, McKinsey’s spokesperson, Jonathan Bailey, will offer his perspective on both the survey’s results and what this means for investment professionals; particularly in Canada.

Why Attend?

The ES&G Forum 2014 has been structured to broaden the discussion on the viability of using ES&G as a key driver for people working in investor relations, institutional/retail investment funds, CSR, sustainability, business management, rating agencies, and academics who are researching or teaching this topic.

The session will include recent research, a case study, and investment practices that are relevant to the inter-linked topics of ES&G, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and Sustainability.
