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.

Financial Services

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.

Consumer Goods

Consumer goods companies are facing increasing pressure to reduce their carbon footprint and eliminate plastic waste, and are also investing in fair labor practices and responsible sourcing.


Healthcare companies are expected to uphold high ethical standards, and are being scrutinized for issues such as patient privacy, drug pricing, and access to healthcare.

Real estate

Real estate companies are taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint and promote sustainable building practices, and are also investing in community development and affordable housing.


The transportation sector is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, and also faces social issues related to safety and labour practices. Companies in this sector can benefit from incorporating ESG considerations into their supply chains and operations.
