Economist 5th annual ESG and Climate Risk Week


The event will take place in a hybrid format on September 12th-14th 2023, in-person and virtually. We will be hosting an in-person day at Hilton Bankside, London, UK.


The 5th annual ESG and Climate Risk Week looks beyond ESG and climate risks to provide practical scenarios on how companies are strengthening their climate disclosure. With near-term target-setting and action-planning, companies will align with global commitments to a just and inclusive low-carbon transition. It is the only risk event that convenes the whole market in one place: from institutional investors to financial services, as well as companies and solution providers. There is a need for collaboration among these groups so that investors and financial stakeholders can review a company’s ESG and climate disclosures and understand the risks and impacts.
