Sustainalytics’ 2017 Fall ESG Event Series
What is the outlook for German carmakers in light of the recent collusion claims?
How viable are oil companies’ business models in a world of cheap oil and increasingly competitive renewables?
How are companies within the real estate industry mitigating their exposure to carbon-related risks?
Globally, there are now $22.89 trillion of assets being professionally managed under responsible investment strategies, an increase of 25 percent since 2014. This growth demonstrates that investors are increasingly considering ESG factors as part of their investment processes. Given this context, understanding the impact of significant ESG trends, risks and opportunities in key sectors is critical to making more informed investment decisions.
Sustainalytics’ 2017 Fall ESG Event Series will cover what major ESG trends, risks and opportunities are facing sectors such as real estate, oil and gas, automobiles and consumer goods. Please join our team of research analysts as they offer the timely and relevant insight on their respective sectors. Below is more information on each event.

Climate Change Trends for the Oil & Gas and Automobile Sectors
STOCKHOLM – Wednesday, September 20
Sustainalytics will be hosting a breakfast seminar focused on the ESG risks and opportunities inherent in two important investment sectors: Oil & Gas and Automobiles.
Both sectors are major contributors to global C02 emissions, and as a result face scrutiny from investors with regard to climate change. Oil & Gas companies are increasingly faced with questions on the viability of their business models, while recognized names atop the Automobile industry have recently been downgraded due to claims of collusion. Given this context, companies in these two sectors are increasingly under pressure to innovate, evolve their business models and capitalize on opportunities.
Sustainalytics’ Lead Oil & Gas Analyst, Alberto Serna Martin, and Senior Transportation Analyst, Enrico Colombo, will share their sector insights and lead a discussion about the risks and opportunities for investors.
Assessing the Current State of Carbon Disclosures
NEW YORK – Tuesday, September 19
When it comes to carbon disclosure, companies struggle to provide meaningful, reliable metrics. Investors struggle with assessing climate risk within their portfolios.
What does robust carbon disclosure look like today? What should it be in the future? How can companies close the information gap? And, how can investors get an accurate picture of climate risk?
Sustainalytics and BASIC NY will be hosting this thought provoking discussion on the state of carbon disclosure as well as a networking reception during New York City Climate Change Week.
