Virtual Informal Drinks: Engage or Divest? Strategies for Sustainable Investing

11th February 2021, 17:30 - 19:15

This event will take place on Zoom. It is a free event.

The most important dilemma that investors are faced with is the question of whether to boycott environmentally harmful companies or to enter into dialogue with them – in other words, whether to simply divest or to engage with them.

Join us for the Virtual Informal Drinks event to address this dilemma. Let’s discuss what the financial impact of each choice would be, and what the respective outcome in terms of ESG impact would be.

As environmental damage triggered or exacerbated by climate change increases around the globe, public pressure on companies to mitigate environmental damage and to promote social sustainability through their activities is growing. For investors, this inevitably leads to the question of how to deal with investments in shares of companies that harm the environment or society.

Get inspired by a short input on this topic by guest speaker Lisa Lange of Hermes Investing and then engage in networking and group discussions in a fun and interactive Zoom event!

This is a free event.
