US ESG Events

ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) was one of the hottest topics facing our clients in 2019 and, as more investors demand better ESG information, the temperature will continue to rise in 2020. MerchantCantos is pleased to sponsor both the SASB Symposium and the IR Magazine ESG Integration Forum. To find out more about the what, where and when for these events, please read on.

SASB Symposium 

This sold-out event will explore the practical questions about the materiality of sustainability information and its relevance to the capital markets – how sustainability factors drive value and how to use sustainability information to inform corporate strategies or investment decisions.

  • When? Tuesday 3rd December 2019

IR Magazine ESG Integration Forum 

The Forum brings investor relations, governance, risk and compliance experts together to explore the underlying factors that have driven the rise of ESG, deepen shareholder engagement, help companies identify and act on material risks, and better manage shareholder proposals. The day will be broken up into a series of discussions to help companies respond to the growing demand for improved ESG practices and disclosures with an integrated approach to environmental, social and governance related risks.

MerchantCantos’ very own sustainability expert, Ian Roe, will also be on a panel delving into “The disclosure dilemma: What to report, to whom, in which format and how?” And leading a roundtable workshop, titled: “Taking your 1st footsteps: How to begin a conversation around environmental, social and governance factors”

  • When? Thursday 5th December 2019
  • Where? The Shearman & Sterling Offices, 599 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10022

If you would like to hear more about either of these events, please get in touch with Nina Eisenman [email protected] Or follow any of our social channels for updates.

We hope to see you there!
