Target Audience ?

ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) is a framework that has become increasingly relevant for companies across various industries. Our event is perfect for forward-thinking industry leaders who want to stay ahead of the curve. We'll help you understand the impact of ESG on your bottom line, and how emphasizing environmental sustainability and good governance can attract socially conscious customers and investors.  Here are some of the industries that should attend the event:

Energy and utilities

Energy companies are under scrutiny for their impact on the environment, and many are taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint and transition to renewable energy sources.

Banks, insurance companies, and asset managers are increasingly incorporating ESG factors into their investment and risk management processes, and are also promoting sustainable finance and responsible investing.


Technology companies are being held accountable for their social and environmental impact, and are taking steps to improve data privacy, diversity, and supply chain sustainability.
