Strong relationships between corporate citizenship and investor relations departments have never been more important. Nearly 50 percent of shareholder proposals in 2018 were ESG proposals, and the leading ESG-driven issues—climate change, labor and equal employment opportunity, human rights, and sustainability reporting—require the active involvement of corporate citizenship professionals. The market for socially responsible investment has grown significantly over the past decade also. In this session, expert panelists will demonstrate how they were able to work with colleagues in investor relations to help their companies meet shareholder demands and amplify their own CSR efforts. You’ll walk away with tactical tips and tricks that will help you translate, communicate, and integrate your corporate citizenship programs with business strategy so you can advance your company’s ESG objectives.
