The Financial Times' Investing in a Sustainable Future conference brings together powerful investors with top CSR executives to discuss topics of critical importance to both. In partnership with the Social Investment Forum, this one-day conference examines the quantification of sustainability, and how environmental, supply chain sourcing, and human rights issues can be measured in strictly financial terms.
- Integrated reporting: Bringing transparency and standardization to CSR initiatives
- Protecting and creating shareholder value through CSR initiatives
- Stakeholder engagement: The investors' perspective on getting this right, and measuring the results
- Water Risk: What a company's water footprint says about its growth potential, and the ways smart organizations are mitigating their water risks
- Incorporating climate change risks into capital allocation strategies
