How ESG & corporate purpose contribute to a sustainable investment future
In our podcast series 'Tackling', we explore, together with business leaders and industry experts, the business-, legal- and tax implications of social and economic trends for companies.
#1 Sustainable Investing
In our first podcast episode: 'How ESG & corporate purpose contribute to a sustainable investment future', our host Janet H. Anderson and guests Piet Klop, Research Director a.i. (SDI - Asset Owner Platform) & Head of Responsible Investment (PGGM Investments) and Antoinette van der Hauw, Partner Corporate / M&A (Loyens & Loeff), tackle the consequences of sustainable investing.
The challenges current and future generations are facing manifest on a global scale. More and more people are demanding that not only the government, but also companies take responsibility for worldwide challenges like climate change, pandemics and world food supply. This point of view has real consequences for companies, as they are not only being judged on their financial performance, but also on their real-world impact.
What does this mean for investors? What are companies and branch organizations already doing to substantiate the real-world effects of investments? And how does the SDI Asset Owner Platform help investors effectively engage with companies that contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals developed by the United Nations?
