Immediately divesting from companies with a poor ESG-related track record isn’t always the answer to ensuring a just transition. Increasingly, banks and investors are making the case for active engagement, as well as escalation through voting at AGMs, noting that this is a more effective way of making sure that all companies change for the better and ultimately contribute to a more sustainable future.
This panel will look at how active engagement can contribute to transition efforts globally, and, in instances where it fails, how divestment should be a last resort.
