Cvent Transition Guide


Getting your environmental, social, and governance (ESG) proposition right links to higher value creation.

Join us as our experts discuss how an effective ESG proposition links to higher value creation. ESG is gaining in popularity as an investment strategy, but how does that apply to an entire organization? Our experts will discuss how top line growth, cost reductions, avoiding legal & regulator interventions and productivity uplift all lead to investment and asset optimization. Our experts will discuss how a strong ESG culture, from the top down, helps lead to better business performance, more effective operations, and increased investor confidence. In fact, better performance in ESG also corresponds with a reduction in downside risk, as evidenced by lower loan and credit default swap spreads and higher credit ratings. CFA Society New York members and financial professionals will benefit from hearing a diverse set of views from established market participants as CFA Society New York continues to provide our community with the ability to hear from market experts virtually and, more importantly, provides the opportunity to ask questions during this period of social distancing.
