Jean-Philippe Renaut leads a small team of ESG specialists that regularly interacts with many of RCC’s members, on behalf of institutional investors. This webinar will address why leading investors are looking more and more into sustainability performance of companies, and Jean-Philippe will describe what investors typically look for in disclosure, including corporate governance, environmental performance, and human capital aspects in the organizations and their supply chains.

This will be a good opportunity for members to understand where to start in terms of ESG disclosure, but also how to stay ahead of investor campaigns.
