#ESG


While uncertainty during the coronavirus era continues, the 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 COVID-19 pandemic. How can a young, high-growth company integrate social and environmental sustainability into its business strategy and proactively meet the expectations of the growing number of ESG investors?

This convening will feature the findings of a recent white paper coauthored by BSR and Morgan Stanley’s Institute for Sustainable Investing, “Sustainable Value: How Emerging Public Companies Can Deliver on ESG Expectations,” with a focus on how a company can create value as it grows from private to public and beyond.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • How a younger company can articulate its unique purpose—creating a sustainability vision that resonates with corporate values and strategy
  • How to proactively address the company’s environmental and social impacts—understanding opportunities to mitigate related risks and maximize positive benefits to all stakeholders
  • How to communicate progress on material ESG issues in an authentic, transparent way—recognizing that a company may still be early in its sustainability journey

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