PRI, UNEP FI and Freshfields to present ‘A Legal Framework for Impact’ at esela Annual Conference

esela Annual Conference 2020: 'The Impact of Business in a Changing Climate' Announces an Extended Agenda

Traditionally a one day event, the esela Annual Conference will take place over two days for the first time this year, with an extended agenda of speakers and topics.

The world is facing a sustainability crisis. On Day 1 of the esela Annual Conference, David Blood, co-founder and senior partner of Generation Investment Management will share his take on how the investment community needs to respond to this challenge, and will introduce an initiative seeking to do just that.

A Legal Framework for Impact’, a major research project commissioned by the PRI, UNEP FI and The Generation Foundation, is examining the extent to which legal frameworks allow investors to consider sustainability impact in investment decision-making.

To be part of this conversation, get your ticket for the esela Annual Conference 2020. Each ticket gives access to both days of the conference.

Day 1 of the conference takes the form of an afternoon plenary focused on investors duties, with discussion with David Rouch, the Freshfields partner leading the research project, as well as perspectives from the investment industry.

Day 2 includes 3 key note sessions, and a choice of 16 breakout sessions and 60 speakers.

We invite you to join us at the esela Annual Conference on 27-28 April.
