Topics

#ESG, #Information and Communications Technology


While COVID-19 continues to drive uncertainty, data in support of sustainable business are more definitive: studies show that investment funds with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria have outperformed the broader market during the pandemic.

How can a young, high-growth company integrate ESG concerns into its business strategy and meet the expectations of a growing number of ESG investors? And what does it take to make commitments on today’s most pressing systemic risks, like climate change?

Join BSR’s EMEA tech team, Uber, and ServiceNow for a facilitated discussion with your peers to share challenges and successes.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • How a younger company can jump-start its ESG efforts 
  • How to make the business case internally, recognizing risks and opportunities 
  • How to make commitments on topics like climate in an authentic, realistic, ambitious way

This convening is by invitation only and is part of a broader series of meetings among young, high-growth companies. Please contact Jonathan Morris if you are interested in attending.

Speakers

  • Christine Diamente, Managing Director, Business Transformation, BSR
  • Jonathan Morris, Associate Director, BSR
  • Marian Macindoe, Head of ESG Strategy & Engagement, Uber
  • Daaf Serné, Director, Real Estate, Workplace & Sustainability, ServiceNow
