Webinar: Does your ESG-strategy create value for the investors?
This webinar focuses on how ESG strategies appear relevant to the financial markets and add value for investors.
The webinar focuses on how ESG strategies are relevant to investors and markets.
Firm’s ESG-strategy has become an important part of the investment process when asset managers and analysts must assess a business. Meanwhile, firms are subject to new laws in relation to their reporting agenda. At this webinar the focus will be on the considerations that firms should take to ensure that their strategy is relevant for the financial markets and at the same time creates value for the investors.
The focus will also be on how firms can prepare themselves for the next part of the EU-taxonomy. Are you a CFO or working with investor relations in a listed company then you have probably already been questioned on the EU-taxonomy by investors and analysts. During the next 6-12 months the interest in the EU-taxonomy will only grow due to increased legislation which is why more asset managers and investment companies will demand to get access to this type of information. The taxonomy can therefore influence firms’ access to capital, since more investors will use the taxonomy as a tool to identify green investment possibilities and as a guideline to help them steer away from greenwashing.
At this webinar you will learn:
- What analysts and investors focus on when they analyze firms’ ESG-strategies.
- What firms should consider to ensure that their ESG-strategy becomes relevant and creates value for investors and analysts.
- What the next phase of the EU-taxonomy entails for firms and how to prepare for the new report requirements.
- How capital managers can use the taxonomy to put together investment portfolios and identify investment opportunities
NB. This webinar will be in Danish
