This event brought together industry leaders amongst asset managers, pension funds and consultants, to discuss practical strategies to respond to the trends in ESG investing

The roundtable focused on three key areas of discussion:

  • Trends and challenges
  • ESG alpha
  • Building the right framework and overcoming the data challenge

One of the main take-aways of this roundtable was the need to stamp out greenwashing. This can only happen if sustainability claims can be independently verified.  The PRI decision to delist signatories that do not live up to their principle is a welcome step in such direction.  Investors and other stakeholders  need to be able to rely on the veracity of sustainability claims.
