ESG as a Pathway to Long-term Value: Current and Future Trends that Consultants and Practitioners Need to Know

Join us on October 13th 2022 (4 to 6 pm MST) for this exciting Virtual Zoom Session on

Virtual Happy Hour – ESG as a Pathway to Long-term Value: Current and Future Trends that Consultants and Practitioners Need to Know

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues are quickly evolving to become a top priority on investors’ agendas and a strategic business imperative for organizations of all kinds. ESG factors are increasingly driving investment decisions, and organizations that respond with improved ESG performance are able to reduce risks and unlock opportunities to enhance their long-term value. Recognizing current market momentum and the importance of integrating ESG into a broader strategic mindset, what do management consultants and practitioners need to know to support their clients’ ESG journeys? Sustrio ESG Advisors’ expert practitioners will provide an overview of the evolution of sustainability from CSR to ESG, current and future ESG trends to be aware of, and how they can help create long-term value for organizations and their stakeholders.

This session initiates a series on ESG. In the coming months, we will take a deeper dive into consulting relative to each of Environmental, Social and Governance.
