BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Natixis Investment Managers (Natixis) today announced that it is the Global Advisor and main sponsor of the Bloomberg Sustainable Business Summit, which will be held on July 13-14, 2021. The Bloomberg Sustainable Business Summit is a global series focused on bridging the gap between business leaders acting on their sustainability goals and investors incorporating Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) in their decision making process. This year’s Summit will be held as a two-day virtual event, with sessions that cross time zones, bringing together global voices from business, finance and government, to focus on the risks and opportunities for corporate executives and forward-thinking investors in a 21st-century economy.
“Our industry must be a leading and active voice in shaping the role of investors, asset owners, policy makers and governments in championing true responsible investment and in keeping with our important ESG initiatives,” said Ed Farrington, Executive Vice President, Institutional and Retirement at Natixis Investment Managers. “The Bloomberg Sustainable Business Summit brings together diverse perspectives on the most significant sustainability issues facing our world. We are excited and honored to be an active participant and sponsor of these vital conversations.”
“The Bloomberg Sustainable Business Summit focuses on bridging the gap between business leaders taking action to secure a sustainable future and investors including ESG criteria into their portfolios,” said Lauren Kiel, General Manager of Bloomberg Green. “The event creates a platform for global leaders to debate the opportunities and risks in including sustainability factors into investment decisions. We are grateful to Natixis Investment Managers for their partnership and for supporting these important conversations at the Bloomberg Sustainable Business Summit.”
Natixis was a part of the Summit Advisory Board where it helped shape the agenda, topics and speakers. The three themes of this year’s Summit are The Road to Net Zero, The Financial Case for Sustainability, and The “S” in ESG. Ed Farrington, Executive Vice President, Institutional and Retirement, and Harald Walkate, Head of ESG, will be interviewed on a spotlight panel, “ESG: What’s Working and What’s Not.” Harald Walkate will also participate in an exclusive roundtable discussion.
