Webinar on Sustainable Finance: Improving Regulation and Engaging Shareholders
We would like to invite all our members to ABIS Webinar on Sustainable Finance on 18.04. at 11 am (GMT+1). Our main speaker will be Ismail Ertürk, Senior Lecturer in Banking at Alliance Manchester Business School.
The Webinar builds on the discussions from our Sustainable Finance track at Colloquium 2018, with a more precise and detailed topic: Improving Regulation and Engaging Shareholders
“Sustainable finance aims broadly to achieve economic growth while reducing environmental impact, addressing green-house emissions and improving the use of natural resources. This objective builds on global political commitments such as those made under the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The management of environmental and social risk factors is increasingly recognized as a requirement for a resilient financial system and proposals for a new framework of regulations. We will start off the webinar by introducing the issue of sustainable finance and regulation. How does regulation influence sustainable finance? Does it help or hinder the development of sustainable finance? In the second part, we will address the often logic of traditional fund managers and shareholders that sustainable investing detracts from financial returns. However, the latest strategies have a great potential to boost returns by integrating the environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into investment processes. How do we change the perception and involve shareholders to be part of sustainable finance decision making?”
The webinar will take up to one hour. The topic will be presented in 15-20 minutes supported by other experts in the field with a QA section afterwards.
