As socially responsible investing has exploded in popularity, institutional and individual investors are redefining the traditional relentless pursuit of shareholder profit maximization. Recent concerns surrounding economic sustainability, corporate social responsibility, and climate change have focused greater attention on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in investing. Our speakers will explore how and why ESG factors and impact investing are thriving in the United States and Europe, and discuss lessons that could be applied to Japan.

Speakers:
Douglas Peterson, President & Chief Executive Officer, S&P Global
Justin Rockefeller, Global Director of Family Offices and Foundations, Addepar; Cofounder, The ImPact; Member of the Investment Committee, Rockefeller Brothers Fund
