edie Sustainable Investment 2020

September 7 - September 8

Before the coronavirus pandemic grabbed headlines around the world, 2020 was touted as being a major year for the climate emergency. While the COVID crisis continues to demand attention from business and political leaders around the world, the need to accelerate our response to the climate emergency remains.

In a post-COVID world, what will the priorities be around redesigning and redeploying finance to stimulate the economy? And how can business and political leaders combine efforts to tackle both the climate and economic challenges that lie ahead?

On a more granular level, many questions around disclosure remain. What does effective disclosure look like? What role does standardisation need to play to accelerate the integration of ESG into investment decision making? How do we resolve the discrepancies between leaders and laggards when it comes to effective disclosure? And what do various degrees of data quality and quantities mean for sustainable investment as a whole?

With myriad strategies and frameworks at play, how do multinational organisations and investors cut through the noise to demonstrate material impact? And who is best placed to decide what is indeed financially material?

Building on the success of edie’s Sustainability Leaders Forum, the 2020 Digital Sustainable Investment Conference will unite corporates, asset managers and asset owners among other key stakeholders, for frank and open discussion around disclosure priorities, roadblocks and innovations.
