Digital Trust Europe - ESG World Forum​

 

ESG World Forum is a two-day, in-person event taking place as part of the Digital Trust Europe series. 

2021 was widely considered “the year of ESG investing.”

Given the importance society has placed on ESG issues following COP26, we are likely to see this growth trend continue throughout 2022.

ESG World Forum will bring together a range of leading ESG experts and executive speakers from a range of industries as every major company is considering ESG strategies. 

ESG World Forum will feature panels and presentations on topics such as:

→ Embedding ESG across global organisations

→ ESG data and sustainable investment 

→ Mainstreaming carbon offsetting 

→ Measuring the “S” in ESG

The event is a must-attend for anyone involved in implementing or reporting on ESG within their organisation and is looking to gain fresh perspectives and ideas regarding ESG.

 

” Attendance at ESG World Forum will help your organisation manage risk, pinpoint opportunities and build a more resilient corporate brand whilst promoting sustainable long-term growth that will benefit companies and investors.”
