Bennett Jones is committed in helping you navigate the ESG landscape and the various ways in which it may affect your business.
Please join us for a series of two engaging discussions focused on ESG for institutional investors and pension plan administrators and the companies with whom they invest and interact. These sessions will also be of interest to companies looking to understand the ESG expectations of institutional investors as companies engage, or prepare to engage, with institutional investors who are, or might become investors.
