Eco-friendly, socially conscious and pro-governance investments have been hailed recently with a surge in focus on ESG initiatives, but sustainability and profitability don’t always go hand in hand. Join The Deal and a roster of senior corporate executives, institutional investors, and corporate advisers as they explore how companies are shifting their focus to more sustainable practices, stronger ESG initiatives and preparing for longer-term risks, all while managing customer and shareholder needs. Cooley partner, Ian Nussbaum will participate on a panel, which will review the ever-changing transformations underway at both index and hedge funds and evaluate the implications for when corporate boards and management teams are targeted.
