Jon Deneuville, ESG Analyst at Castle Hall, will be attending the RI Americas 2018. The continent’s leading sustainable business and finance conference, is back for its 10th annual conference.
"As the world trade system grapples with existential threats and investors respond to turbulent politics, 2018 is a key year for responsible investment in North America. Against a backdrop of heightened political risk and growing social discord, investors must build resilient portfolios that address major ructions in society, technology and the economy. The fight for the future of shareholder rights and proxy access is in full swing. Machine learning, AI, data privacy and trends in automated manufacturing must all be considered. The physical risks from climate change and the transformation of the energy system are testing the adaptability of the world’s largest energy companies.
Engaged investors are at the heart of this transformation and are also showing new leadership on human capital development. The role of investors in driving long-term value creation and social stability has never been more important."
