ENVIRONMENTAL, social and governance reporting and investment will come under the spotlight at the next IoD Jersey Branch panel discussion.
Taking place on 14 July, the event aims to connect the ethical principles of sustainability with technology capability to improve productivity and bring value to the community.
Sponsored by Collas Crill, the event will begin with a panel discussion featuring Jersey Hospice chief executive Mike Palfreyman, Uniti chief executive Ed Prow, and Wayne Atkinson, Collas Crill’s head of Guernsey corporate, finance and funds.
The discussion will be followed by audience group sessions, in which attendees are encouraged to explore how the ideas might work in their sectors.
Natasha Egré, chairwoman of IoD Jersey, said: ‘Being a leader in today’s world means being responsible and adding value to the communities in which we operate. There has been a lot of talk about green-washing, but equally there are many organisations which are leading the way in ESG, and we’re hoping to harness the experience and knowledge of our panel and attendees to ensure that all Jersey businesses are able to play their part.’
Mr Atkinson added: ‘The importance of engaging with ESG issues properly has never been clearer. As with so many other aspects of business, making good use of technologies new and old can significantly alter how that is achieved. I look forward to participating in this discussion with a great panel and hearing thoughts from those in the room about how we can use these ideas to improve our communities, both locally and globally.’
The event takes place on Thursday 14 July at the Royal Yacht Hotel from 8.30 to 10am.
