Church Pension Group Hosts Discussion on the ABCs of ESG
The Church Pension Group (CPG), which helps the Episcopal Church with its finances, has announced that it will host a virtual conversation with leading industry experts to talk about recent changes in the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) landscape and give specific examples of how these factors have been taken into account in investment options.
This is the next stage of CPG's ongoing Insights & Ideas series on socially responsible investing (SRI). Those who are interested in attending the event, which happens Thursday, October 20, 2022, between 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM ET, can do so by registering at cpg.org/Insights&Ideas.
Mary Kate Wold, CEO and President of CPG, said:
"Environmental, social, and governance problems can have a big effect on the risk and return of an investment. These issues, historically limited to socially responsible investors, are garnering increased attention and moving to the mainstream as more investors recognise their impact on investment performance. I encourage individuals interested in learning more about this important topic to join us on October 20th.”
Jonathan Bailey, Managing Director and Head of Environmental, Social, and Governance Investing at Neuberger Berman, Emily Lawrence, North American Director of Sustainable Investing Client Engagement at Northern Trust Asset Management, Jacqui Murray, Partner at Resource Capital Funds, and Christopher Rowe, Managing Director at the Church Pension Group, will be on the panel.
