IR Magazine webinar – Putting the ‘S’ in ESG

How your business operates within a broad societal context is core to the longevity of your business. Larry Fink’s 2019 letter to CEOs highlights that profits and purpose are inextricably linked. When looking at ESG issues, social impacts are often lumped in with environmental and governance issues – but investors are increasingly seeking deeper information about a company’s social impacts as a stand-alone consideration.

A new generation of retail investors is increasingly concerned about topics like executive remuneration, board diversity or social and human rights issues throughout a company’s supply chain. New index products have appeared that screen for firms with good practices. Furthermore, the pool of institutional investors that integrate ESG factors into their investment and voting decisions is rapidly growing, as is the expectation for companies to incorporate a social narrative into their equity story, and disclose information on social factors – something that is notoriously hard to quantify.
