The disruption from COVID-19 and its ensuing tragic toll, prompted an unprecedented global government, public and private institutions response, unlike anything we’ve seen outside out war. The pandemic coupled with social upheaval in the Spring of 2020, brought a renewed focus for investors, corporations and citizens to speculate about its long-term political, economic, and social consequences. We have entered a transformative phase as a global culture, reevaluates and reexamines the way we do business, why and where and who’s affected by business goals and outcomes.

As policymakers, corporations and investors prepare to reopen business with reduced or few restrictions – we examine the 2021 imperative to reframe and rebuild existing environmental, social and governance frameworks to build resilient, sustainable corporate and community ecosystems. Join S&P Global Market Intelligence for an in-depth discussion with Sustainable1 analysts and distinguished noted influencers within environmental, social, governance (ESG). Panelists will explore climate and ocean policy, explore the depth and limitations of current ESG metrics tied to financial performance, and insights on environmental policies, urban planning and much more.
