Economist 5th annual ESG and Climate Risk Week

Editors of The Economist will take to the stage next month for the 5th annual ESG and Climate Risk Week. Among the plethora of names and leading sustainability figures joining us for the event we look forward to welcoming our editors who will be sharing their prescient insights.
Vijay V. Vaitheeswaran is the global energy and climate innovation editor, covering the energy and utility industries, the clean energy transition, climate innovations and low carbon technologies. He leads The Economist’s coverage of America’s climate and green infrastructure efforts, and keeps a watchful eye on ESG trends and corporate pledges of net-zero emissions for signs of promise as well as greenwashing.
Gavin Jackson is an economics and finance correspondent covering climate change and capital markets. He occasionally writes the Free Exchange column. Before working at the Economist he was at the Financial Times for eight years, writing the leader column and reporting on economics. He has degrees from the University of Oxford and the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics. His first book Money In One Lesson was published in January 2022.
Emily Jackson leads environmental sustainability at The Economist Group, and is responsible for driving strategy and embedding sustainability across the organisation. Most recently she has been leading brand partnerships and key accounts for the Group in Germany and Austria. Emily has lived and worked in Europe and Asia, and currently lives in Frankfurt. She holds an MA in German and Management from the University of St Andrews; attended a University of Cambridge business sustainability management course, and is currently pursuing a Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Business focusing on value chains at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL).
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 corporates and solution providers.

Mark Carney, co-chair, GFANZ and UN special envoy for climate action, United Nations
