FIRESIDE CHAT: ESG POLICY AND REGULATION

Respond to the Changing ESG Landscape to Meet Globally Accepted Standards

ESG has been top of mind in virtually all foundation and endowment investment strategies. Meet ESG disclosures and measurement criteria, finally occurring in global standards, by creating a critical response strategy. Break through the confusion to:

  • Measure and better demonstrate how your investments relate to people, the planet and prosperity
  • Understand the established globally accepted sustainability performance standards
  • Determine how ESG transparency and mandatory reporting will impact your investments

Gain a better understanding of the changing ESG regulations and what they mean for your investment strategies.
