figNorwich Seminar: Applying Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) in Financial Services
ESG and other factors are a growing area of interest for clients, shareholders and professionals alike. In conjunction with Brewin Dolphin and NatWest, this event explored some of the issues from the perspective of FIG members, starting with the Banking and Investment industries.
Thank you to everyone who joined our seminar yesterday, which explored the role of ESG and other factors from the perspective of FIG members, starting with the Banking and Investment industries.
For those unable to attend, NatWest highlighted the impact of climate change upon financial services and customers and Brewin Dolphin focused upon the ethics of investment and wealth management. It was a very useful session in introducing ESG considerations for investment in particular and providing an indication of its wider implications generally.
Please find below some useful links on the environment, which were mentioned during the talk. Simon Lubbock focused upon, as he said, the “E” in ESG and mentioned a number of very helpful websites. The links he mentioned during the talk are as follows:
- Stripes showing change in average temperatures – https://showyourstripes.info/
- Maps showing changing sea levels – https://choices.climatecentral.org/
- Calculating your carbon footprint – https://zero.giki.earth/
- In addition, the Climate section of the UEA website has some brilliant content on this critical subject – https://www.uea.ac.uk/climate
We hope these are useful for you and hope to see you again at future seminars. We are also very hopeful that we can arrange an in-person networking meeting, to enable a wider discussion, later in the year.
