30th April: Join our Member web chat on the ESG Agenda

Monthly ‘web chat’ with Communities that Work:

Apr 30, 2021 11:30-12.30

We’re open for registration – members only, guests by invitation.

In this session there will be an update from CtW, and we’ll hear from guest speaker Paul Roberts, on the ESG agenda. Paul will run through ESG in overview and show how ESG is getting more exposure at Boards, which is helping to increase Board awareness of the employment activities included as part of social value portfolios.   Paul will also consider how the focus on ESG highlights the increasing range of competing areas for investment by HAs, and leads to challenging investment dilemmas. As ever, there will be time to chat and hear from members too. Register in advance please:
