Emerging ESG can no longer be ignored, but how can financial services navigate the impending obstacle of ESG regulations and expectations, and how deep will they go?

Over the past few years, global bodies – from governments to financial regulators – have issued guidance, policies, consultations and regulations aimed at tackling environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.

The move to ESG is unavoidable, driven in part by shifting societal expectations – and partly by an undeniable need to tackle climate-related issues while we still can.

For financial services, ESG focus has emerged slowly but is picking up pace. However, current developments are only the tip of a far bigger ESG iceberg.


CUBE’s ESG Conference 2021 aims to explore the emerging landscape around ESG within financial services, with an overarching goal to inform and educate, so that organisations can take genuine, meaningful steps towards tackling ESG.​

This conference will draw on industry voices to explore the motivating factors behind the shifting industry focus around ESG, as well as providing practical tips about how to get ESG right (and how to avoid getting it wrong).
