In an era where environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations have evolved from buzzwords to fundamental drivers of business success, the ESG Investment Europe 2023 event, organised by Reuters Events, provides a key opportunity for business executives to access the insights needed to navigate the complex landscape of sustainable finance, and to position their businesses with the clarity required to engage potential investors.

Taking place on 6-7 September in London, the event will bring together an impressive list of notable ESG voices who, through deep experience and commitment to a “just, robust and sustainable future of finance”, will outline pathways to strategic impact that attend to stakeholder needs while driving responsible business growth.

Convening ESG Visionaries

Reuters Events builds on Reuters’ deep experience of impartial reporting and impactful analysis, a tradition extended to their events, consistently attracting industry thought leaders, experts, and decision-makers to address global challenges.

ESG Investment Europe 2023 embodies this legacy, uniting stakeholders who recognise the transformative potential of ESG-conscious investing in shaping a sustainable future.

Pillars of Transparency

This year’s event revolves around a comprehensive exploration of the "6 Industry-Defining Pillars" that constitute the bedrock of ESG investment. These pillars are geared towards building actionable transparency, helping C-suite decision-makers better understand how finance is evolving to meet both the inherent challenges and the diverse opportunities of the global economic transition to sustainability.

Quantifying Biodiversity Risk and Nature-Based Opportunities: Learn to assess biodiversity risks for investors and explore the opportunity for nature-based investments that can bridge the USD 711 billion gap for addressing nature loss. Experts present viable approaches for investors to place value on nature while protecting natural assets.

Accelerating Action on Net Zero Commitments: Assess whether European institutional investors are effectively monitoring net-zero commitments and if the financial community is able to prioritise an equitable transition. Learn case study measures to build accountability into your net-zero initiatives and develop real 2050 goals.

Developing Market-Fit Regulation, Reporting, and Ratings: Learn how to anticipate policymaker response to SFDR concern and Article 8 clarity, while understanding the ISSB’s role in its implementation following the finalisation of reporting standards. Investors can speak directly with regulators to bridge market needs and policy development.

Boots on the Ground Engagement in Developed and Emerging Markets: Learn how inventors can engage with portfolio companies for supply chain resilience, and discover financing pathways for SME sustainability in emerging markets. Gain insight on impactful resolutions, enhancing data quality, and collaboration on shared ESG targets.

Future-Proof Fixed Income Options: Discover impactful green bond options and learn about integrating geopolitical risk assessment into investment decisions. Gain valuable insight from top European asset managers to discern robust portfolio opportunities that endow both growth potential and sustainability. 

Social materiality: Aligning people, planet, and returns. Learn how critical tools such as AI and satellite tech can gauge social materiality to create a comprehensive ESG strategy. Explore methods beyond mandatory standards, fostering organisational diversity and inclusion, all via insight from prominent NGOs, intergovernmental organisations, and impact investors focussed on a human-centred ESG approach.

These pillars are just that, the major supporting questions that arise within the multifaceted considerations both investors and businesses must tackle in order to thrive under growing sustainability imperatives.  

Leveraging ESG's Transformative Power

In a landscape where responsible investment is both necessary and strategic, ESG Investment Europe 2023 provides participants a platform to align financial aspirations with ethical values. This event moves beyond rhetoric, offering credible discussions and presentations bolstered by the collective expertise of both speakers and participants, in an interactive setting, to transform the potential for positive, actionable takeaways from the 2-day programme.
