Many businesses remark that investors are not listening to debates around or interested in corporate responsibility. Conversely, many investors are reporting that businesses are not focusing CR/Sustainability on the right areas or articulating why it matters to business value.

Part of Responsible Business Week 2014, in partnership with Veolia Environnement

This session will bring together a panel of investors and business representatives to discuss their opinion, priorities and where attitudes to sustainability converge.

Participants will take part in roundtable work to develop and feedback action plans for how their company can better articulate sustainability inside and outside their organisations in order to engage better with this important stakeholder.

This event is for senior representatives from publicly listed companies with responsibility for Corporate Responsibility/Sustainability. During the event, delegates will participate in an interactive exercise facilitated by investor representatives.

Chair: Patrick Mallon, Field Director at Business in the Community

Speakers include:

Sandra Carlisle, Head of Responsible Investment at Newton Investment Management
