In this webinar we will provide an update on Environmental, Social and Governance reporting for property investors. Things have been moving rapidly since our previous webinar on 20 October, with a number of major announcements to coincide with COP26.
This webinar will cover:
Our speakers are back from the previous webinar – both by popular demand! Anne Johnstone, a renowned environmental and sustainability consultant specialising in the built environment and John Forbes, a leading real estate fund expert and commentator
Testimonials from the 20 October webinar:
"I work in ESG and found the session really useful for consolidating my thinking on the topic - this is useful given how very complex it is.""It would be great to have a follow up session with the same speakers focusing on the outcomes from COP as well as some further reflections on the recent policy announcements.""Both speakers were excellent and I would look to attend further seminars by either.""Very well moderated and excellent speakers at the top of their game on this complex and exciting topic, thank you!"
Join the webinar to find out more on the outcomes from COP as we reflect further on recent policy announcements. Pose your questions in advance or on the day.
