On 4 June 2019, the EIB hosted a conference on “Valuing corporate sustainability performance: meeting the needs of investors and civil society” which was jointly organised with CSR Europe in Brussels.
Throughout the day around 100 experts and practitioners working on CSR, sustainability, corporate performance, investor relations, finance and public affairs discussed on various panels and workshops key questions such as:
- What does it mean for business to re-define their value for society?
- How can companies integrate sustainability into their core business?
- Which approaches are most promising to help companies measure their impact?
- Seeking return on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues: Why does sustainability matter from an investor’s perspective?
