Wall Street and Bay Street & Sustainability: Does Your CSR Report Resonate with Investors (Toronto and Livestream)
BREAKING NEWS: Sustainable Business Practices Dramatically Boost Stock Valuations
Did you read this title and think, “it’s about time?” Unfortunately, the title is more future prediction than current fact. Bay/Wall Street often fails to appreciate the proven bottom line benefits of sustainable business practices. But on February 5th TSSS is excited to launch its 2015 season with a distinguished panel of experts that will discuss how corporations can have their sustainable development (SD) work more accurately reflected in their stock valuation.
Does your company’s CSR Report resonate with the investment community? Does it tell analysts and money managers the information that they need to know? Is the information actionable for immediate investment decisions? At the end of the day, are your sustainability efforts reflected in your company’s stock price? If the answer is NO and the capital markets are not rewarding your sustainability efforts then this event is for you.
Our Distinguished Guests:
- Ian McPherson, Launched Canada’s 1st Global Clean Energy Fund & Chairs the Investment Committee of the United Church of Canada
- Martin Grosskopf, Vice President and Portfolio Manager, Director of Sustainable Investing at AGF
- Julie Desjardins, President at Desjardins & Associates Consulting Inc., Co-author of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Issues in Institutional Investor Decision Making
