An interactive ESG evening (Environment, Social and Governance) – Sponsored by ING

Wednesday 9 November 2022 – ING Level 28 60 Margaret St Sydney NSW 2000

ESG impact, transition and sustainability from various perspectives How will Australia meet its climate objectives?

How do we transition from a carbon-based society to the net-zero future? How do we integrate environmental, economic, and social objectives?

There is a new direction at the federal level, however the complexity remains!  Policy needs to realise environmental objectives including biodiversity and CO2 targets, social and economic objectives including funding workforce planning, skills development and the energy transition, stimulate technological development and manage the governance of competing interest groups.  No small task.

 The good news is that the financial markets and public sentiment have swung behind ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) objectives.  The panel will discuss how we move from intent to actual progress.

The presentation & discussion will be in English and you are invited to join the Q&A.

ING will be hosting the evening and invite you to join us for a drink and nibbles at their offices.
