Building back better through sustainable investment and climate disclosure

Event Date: 29/07/2020 1:00 pm

This one-hour webinar, hosted in association with edie's virtual Sustainable Investment Digital Conference, will connect the investor community with sustainability leaders to explore the role of green finance and climate-related financial disclosure in recovering from the coronavirus pandemic.

Covid-19 has radically escalated the need to combat the climate emergency. The question is no longer how or if the economy should pivot towards a green future, but when and what is required to twin these global issues of the pandemic and climate change. A post-Covid-19 world will be full of new normals” – one of which must be closer dialogue between sustainable businesses and increasingly climate-conscious investors. 

So, what must happen next in order to redesign and redeploy finance in a way that stimulates the green economy? What information will businesses need to provide to assist with this rebuilding? And how can organisations overcome the so-called “disclosure gap to ensure they are providing the right information to influence investor decisions? 

This edie webinar, sponsored by UL, will bring together a selection of investors and sustainability professionals to showcase how investors and businesses can engage in a way that places green finance and climate disclosures at the heart of the Covid-19 recovery. Specifically, the one-hour webinar will equip sustainability professionals with fresh insights into how they can enhance investor relations and deliver stronger non-financial disclosure in the 2020s.
