Who Cares Wins: Decarbonisation, Digitalization and Sustainability Trends

June 30, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Georg Kell joins us for our Summer of Sustainability

Throughout the summer we will be inviting guest speakers to discuss their experience with ESG investing and sustainability, and how this growing trend can create new opportunities for advisers and investors alike.

On Wednesday 30th June, we welcome Chairman of Arabesque, Georg Kell, to discuss ‘Decarbonisation, Digitalization and Sustainability Trends’. Together, we will cover a number of areas, including;

  • The rise of modern sustainable finance
  • The blurring lines of public vs private responsibility
  • Demand and trends of the new generation of investors
  • Materiality and ESG
  • What is next for sustainable finance

Sustainability means being fit for future purpose, and means sustainable businesses come out top in the race for decarbonisation and disruption of the current economic world order. Discover more about ESG data, its meaning for all of us, the interactions between public and private sectors, and how sustainability and technology fit into the picture.
