The ESG Agenda Beyond Covid-19

Is adversity forcing us to rethink the purpose of business?

The coronavirus crisis has undeniably shifted perspectives about businesses, governments and their social role. Does the current crisis make ESG less relevant or more important than ever?

The ESG Agenda Beyond Covid-19

Climate change and ESG dominated the business agenda in the past 12 months. With the outbreak of the coronavirus, however, the focus has changed and many businesses have simply turned back to survival mode. 

Does the Covid-19 crisis provide a new landscape where the social role of business will become an integral part of its purpose? Or will the expected economic slowdown force organisations to return to business as usual?

Join us for a virtual panel discussion with Silvia Pavoni, Economics Editor at The Banker, and Professor Joe DiVanna, to debate these and other questions and understand what the ESG agenda means for your business and your people.
