ESG Conference Warsaw
25th of November, we were a part of first ESG Warsaw conference with NN Investment Partners TFI, CFA Society Poland and Warsaw Stock Exchange (GPW).
ESG (environmental, social, governance) is really becoming mainstream at the moment sustainable investing assets grew 11% from 2016 year to 2018 year in Europe.
The combination of the overall growth of ESG integration and the demographic change among investors indicates the increasing importance of ESG for companies. We are a strong supporter of the innovations on Polish capital market and we are delighted that the event was very well attended by corporates, as well as local investors who participated in IR meetings with companies involved in ESG.
Thank you to our specialists- Fritz Mostböck, Head of Group Research from Erste Group Bank for moderating and Walter Hatak, Head of Responsible Investments from Erste Asset Management for taking part in the panel discussion Are polluters worth a second chance? What is better, engagement or exclusion?.
