Redburn hosts first ESG Conference 23 September 2020

  • 500 attendees as Redburn hosts first-of-its-kind ESG conference
  • Topics covered include inclusive capitalism, sustainability leadership and investment, supply chains, biodiversity and the energy transition
  • Conference follows the launch of Redburn Purpose, a proprietary ESG research offer

On 23rd September Redburn hosted its first ESG conference, working in association with its strategic partner, Rothschild & Co. The Conference brought together industry leaders and asset managers with presentations and panel discussions. A date for the next ESG conference has been confirmed for 22nd September 2021.

Key themes covered at the conference were inclusive capitalism, sustainability leadership, advanced technologies and the future of biological, energy and food systems, as well as how to navigate and invest in ESG. A total of 22 companies held detailed conversations with groups of investors to explain their ESG strategies and values.

Redburn has placed ESG analysis at the heart of its equity research. The Conference follows the launch, earlier in 2020, of the ESG research alliance between Redburn and OMS LLP. Prior to the Conference Redburn launched its ESG Research product under the Redburn Purpose banner. Redburn intends to be a leading provider of ESG research for asset managers who face the challenge of aligning investment performance with increasing environmental, social and corporate governance responsibilities.

Angus Bauer, ESG Strategist at Redburn, commented: “The conference was a truly insightful event which brought together industry and investment leaders to discuss and share knowledge on ESG. It is crucial that equity research embraces the need for active asset managers to marry investment performance to corporate and social responsibilities and holding events like the conference is an important step in the right direction. I thank the contributors and attendees for making this such a successful event and look forward to holding our second ESG conference next year.”
