Where are Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Considerations Heading in 2021?

December 9, 2020  • Business and Society Program

After initial fears that ESG might be labeled as a ‘backburner’ concern during the pandemic, superior performance by highly rated companies and growing emphasis from mainstream investors have boosted ESG up the list of priorities in corporate-investor conversations. As we move into the post-election environment, this webinar will examine the direction of public policy and investor focus around ESG, as the U.S. attempts to support a strained economy, address social justice concerns and deal with increasingly anxious news on the climate front.

Invited Speakers:

  • Jonathan Bailey, Managing Director and Head of ESG Investing, Neuberger Berman
  • Cambria Allen, Director of Corporate Governance, UAW Retiree Medical Benefits Trust & Board Member, Council of Institutional Investors
  • Lex Suvanto, Global Managing Director, Capital Markets and Financial Communications, Edelman
  • Moderator: Sabastian Niles, Partner, Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz
