WTF is ESG?

In our monthly WHAT THE FUTURE series held earlier last week, we had the privilege of featuring Dr. James Gifford, who is the Head of Sustainable and Impact Investing and Thought Leadership at Credit Suisse.

A passionate environmental advocate, Dr. Gifford was also the founding Head of the UN Principles for Responsible Investment. His decade-long tenure at the helm of the organisation then led to his contribution in numerous articles and book chapters in the topic of sustainable investing.

In this session, he shares his insights on how investors are incorporating sustainability risks and opportunities into their investment processes to gain a deeper understanding of the companies in which they invest, and leverage fast-growing megatrends. He also discussed the trend of investors deploying capital into new and innovative technology companies that are solving environmental and social challenges, while delivering sizable returns.
