Webinar: Doing Well by Doing Good: The ESG Intersection

Events / Wednesday, June 9, 2021

The Biden administration has brought climate change, sustainability and corporate governance to the forefront of federal policies at the same time the private sector is seeking investment opportunities in companies that share those priorities. Lenders and equity investors will increasingly look at, and perhaps provide favorable terms to, asset managers and firms that factor environmental and sustainability considerations into all facets of their operations, supply chains, and investment processes. In the race to do well through doing good, many lenders are offering favorable terms and pricing to ESG borrowers.

Please join us to hear our knowledgeable panel discuss:
  • The Biden administration's policy updates on climate change and sustainability and how those will impact financial services.
  • An overview of key environmental considerations that impact the investment process and portfolios.
  • How organizations like Solar One are providing training and technical assistance to foster sustainability in diverse urban environments and in partnership with the private and public sectors.
  • How investors are identifying ESG risks and opportunities, and avoiding “greenwashing.”
  • A comparison between ESG efforts in the United States and Europe.
  • The global outlook on climate change and sustainability.
