ESG for Investor Relations
29 Oct 2020
This virtual classroom course is designed to give Investor Relations (IR) and Communications Professionals an in-depth update on current best practices for communicating with ESG investors, analysts and advisors.
A company’s Environmental Social Governance (ESG) performance is increasingly used by investors to draw conclusions on quality of management, exposure to business risks and ability to leverage business opportunities. This information is used alongside financial and strategic data to gain a better understanding of a company’s future prospects. Therefore, it becomes more important for companies to communicate with investors clearly and accurately on these aspects of their performance. What are the regulations? What do investors need to know? How do you tell your ESG story effectively? Who are the influencers and decision makers in this process? What is best practice?
Facilitated by an expert IR practitioner with several key note speakers, this virtual classroom course will help listed companies navigate the changing landscape and integrate ESG communications into IR best practices
