Location

San Francisco


Topics

#Information and Communications Technology


The transition of companies from private to public brings new challenges and opportunities for corporate responsibility and sustainability. This event intends to bring companies that have recently gone through an IPO—or soon will—together with the investors they will increasingly interact with and companies whose experiences they can learn from. It will offer answers to questions such as:

  • How can sustainability issues be embedded in the governance, management, and operations of high-growth companies in ways that support—rather than stifle—innovation? 
  • What new expectations for transparency on social and environmental impacts arise?
  • How should newly public companies interact with the ESG investment community?
  • What strategy should newly public companies deploy on hot topics such as climate change, diversity, and human rights?

Please join us for networking and a discussion.
