(3BL Media/Justmeans) —S-Network Global Indexes, a leading publisher and developer of proprietary and custom indexes, is hosting its 5th annual “Summer in the City” CSR Investing Summit and Workshop July 19-20 in New York. 

“Summer in the City” is an all-day conference that presents a forum for engaging with thought leaders and discussing their viewpoints on how to define, manage, and measure responsible investing. The Summit includes expert impact investing practitioners from the Environmental, Social, and Governance landscape who are plan sponsors, endowments, consultants, academics, non-governmental organizations, the sell side, and media.

Panelists and speakers will address investment risks that go beyond market or systemic risk and explore and propose ways to quantify and defend investments against ESG risks from a multi-dimensional perspective.  Bruno Bertocci, Managing Director, UBS Global Asset Management & Financial Stability Board, Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, and Georg Kell, Chairman, Arabesque Partners, and Founding Executive Director of the UN Global Compact will be the featured speakers.

Key panels and speakers include:

High Conviction Investing and ESG
ESG Integration Update
ESG Data Quality
Climate Risk, Resource Risk, and Financial Performance
The Politics of Sustainability
Defining “American Investing Values” and Purposeful Investing
David Tulauskas, Director, Sustainability, General Motors Company
Bernardo Guillamon — Manager, Office of Outreach and Partnerships, IDB

Gregg Sgambati, Director of ESG Solutions at S-Network Global Indexes [pictured] adds, “This year we asked our speakers and panelists to explore less conventional investment risks that are directly tied to internal enterprise risks and external risks such as climate risk. Companies that are best positioned to mitigate negative risk events have their enterprise risk management teams aligned with corporate social responsibility. These risk events can have a significant impact on financial results and stock prices.”
