The world’s largest investment firm Blackrock sent a clear message when Larry Fink issued his annual letter to CEOs in January - ESG investment is now mainstream.  More than ever before, there is now a succinct demand from investors for companies to disclose their ESG performance with a clear articulation of their purpose and value creation strategy. While Integrated Reporting <IR> is an effective way to respond to these information demands, it is one piece in a wider set of potential strategic responses.  Engagement and action on shareholder and stakeholder interests is essential.   

Join us on February 28 to find out from those on the front line what information ESG investors are looking for, why and how to engage effectively on shareholder and stakeholder interests.
