ACLCA Webinar: ESG Investing and Life Cycle Thinking
ESG Investing and Life Cycle Thinking
January 16, 2019
Speaker: Angela Fisher, LCACP, Aspire Sustainability
Investors and governmental and nongovernmental organizations are pushing for increased transparency and disclosure of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. Similarly, millennials are coming into money and want to invest it responsibly. ESG investing is focused as much on return potential as on positive societal and environmental change. Impact investors are increasingly able to pressure companies to be more transparent about the sustainability of their supply chains and the environmental and societal impact of their production processes and products. Additionally, ESG factors have become a more important part of the investment process with a considerably increasing focus on sustainability.
This webinar aims to shine a light on the growing expectations that investors are placing on organizations. It will provide a glimpse into the world of ESG Investing and highlight what sustainability professionals need to know. The goal is to discuss ways in which LCA and sustainability professionals can support their companies (and their investor relations teams) by sharing sustainability successes in public reports, proactively engaging in sustainability activities that investors will be requiring of companies in the future, and collaborating across functions to ensure that real, meaningful efforts are being taken by the company to drive towards a more sustainable, lower-risk future.
