30th November 2016, 08:45 am - 06:00 pm | DVFA Center, Frankfurt/Main
Taking ESG into Account is DVFA/EFFAS’ joint conference format for investment professionals engaged in ESG, sustainability and responsible investing in Europe. On November, 30 2016 about 100 participants gathered in the DVFA Center to discuss the state of ESG in the investment industry.
DVFA as the German Society of Investment Professionals and EFFAS as the European umbrella association of investment professional societies have been successfully engaged in the mainstreaming of ESG into investment decision-making. Ever since the publication of their seminal paper “KPIs for ESG” in 2010 and the launch of the ESG training program “Valuation, Measurement & Integration” in 2014 both organizations have been an important hotbed of approaches and methods for integrating seemingly marginal topics into the mainstream of financial markets.
Keynote: "Why I changed my mind about ESG - It really matters"
