CSRHub’s Bahar Gidwani Speaking at ESG5 Summit
Skytop Strategies will launch its ESG5 Summit on April 4th in New York. CSRHub Co-founder and CTO Bahar Gidwani will be speaking on Materiality: Aligning Materiality to Your Company’s Business Model.
The growing focus on the implementation of environmental, social and governance standards and best practices is driven by increasing scrutiny of the public markets, their analysts, and institutional investors; and growing emphasis on transparency and accountability in today’s global markets. As a result, capital markets now engage regularly in discussions on how to assess the value of ESG practices on overall company performance, working with companies that integrate ESG into their performance equation to quantify, qualify and assign added-value by experts making buy, sell or hold recommendations.
Engage with experts and learn how to apply ESG considerations to your company and your investments.
