New Guidance on Corporate Engagement on ESG Issues for Investors
October 13, 2015
BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, has teamed up Ceres to shape a comprehensive set of guidance tips for U.S. institutional investors on engaging with brands and the public policy world on sustainability issues. This talk will share key insights reached in the process of researching and articulating the tips in question, based on real-world examples of investor engagement with companies. The focus will be on ways in which engagement culture and styles are shifting both in the US and internationally, shareholder resolutions, board of director engagement, divestment, creating a focus list, as well as strategies for deeper collaboration. A must-attend for both companies and investors.
