Green Economy

The move may have already been in motion but the past 12 months has amplified and intensified discussions around environmental, social, and governance (ESG). The task force on climate-related financial disclosures (TCFD) are working to form standards and increase reporting of climate-related financial information, forcing businesses to be more mindful of their environmental impact if they are wishing to attract investment. At this event we will hear from our expert speakers who will discuss the rising value of the E in ESG, why is it in increasing demand and what is driving the need for trustworthy reporting.

Please note that places are limited and Covid safety will be paramount
