ESG и устойчивое развитие
online + offline, Mercure Moscow Paveletskaya at 11 Bakhrushina St., Floor 2, Moscow
September 28
What is the 2023 ESG Conference about? Rethinking ESG as a strategic driver for business transformation.

Despite external challenges, the ESG and sustainability agenda remains relevant for Russian companies. Investors, lenders, and rating agencies expect greater visibility into non-financial metrics to better understand companies’ various social and environmental risks.

There is a strong preference for ESG-compliant companies, and a lack of attention to sustainability and environmental issues is already reducing the pool of potential investors, lenders, business partners, and customers.
