Co-hosted by MJ Hudson and Cenkos Securities Plc.

Please click here to register to attend.

This virtual conference will be of interest to directors and senior executives of AIM companies, pension, wealth and asset managers, Limited Partnerships and investors in companies admitted to trading on AIM looking to understand more about ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) factors, including why these are now cited as key drivers in investors’ investment decisions and how these factors are taking centre stage of non-financial reporting.

Similarly, AIM companies can learn that they can derive value by integrating ESG into their processes and policies to enable continued stakeholder engagement and access to the capital markets.

We have curated an agenda to give you access to a variety of ESG experts with ranging views and experiences. There will also be opportunities for attendees to ask their questions directly to panellists – so please come prepared.
