The global pandemic put a spotlight on the value of environmental, social and corporate governance considerations in capital markets. Global sustainability indices outperformed mainstream market benchmarks and ESG investments achieved record inflows, pushing assets under management to a new high of more than $1tn.
Join us as we bring together sustainability executives from three of the world's largest banks: JPMorgan Chase in the U.S., BNP Paribas in Europe and DBS in Asia. This global panel will discuss the role of ESG in our post-pandemic recovery, including:
- How has COVID-19 evolved market perspectives on the value of ESG?
- How are evolving market initiatives like TCFD, bank stress testing and the EU Taxonomy for Sustainable Activities impacting decision making?
- How should companies and financial institutions balance different environmental, social and corporate governance priorities?
- What is the role of social bonds, sustainability bonds and green bonds - and other ESG financial instruments - in the crisis recovery?
