Financial and environmental experts from some of the world's largest investors and banks will discuss the prominent rise in environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing and what that means for business at edie's Sustainable Investment Conference next month.
The two-day digital event takes place on 13-14 July and will see sustainability professionals from businesses and financial experts from investors meet to discuss the array of challenges and opportunities that embracing the green recovery can bring.
