The Nuances of the “E” in ESG: Navigating the Short-term & Long-term Approaches to Investing in Climate Action



Date & Time

Start Date: 07/28/2022
Start Time: 12:00 p.m. ET
End Time: 1:00 p.m. ET


Environmental impact was once seen as a purely optional business consideration. As the debate on climate change continues and the SEC moves to require climate risk disclosures, pressure is mounting for companies to address the effect their operations have on the environment.

Join Cozen O’Connor’s John Shire and Karen Wawrzaszek, regional president of BNY Mellon Wealth Management, for an in-depth analysis of the environmental portion of ESG and the different business advantages between short-term and long-term investing in climate action.

The program will address:

  • the impact of geopolitical events on investing in climate action
  • building a support framework for achieving temperature parity and getting to net zero
  • right-sizing the metrics and evaluation of various environmental and climate initiatives
  • preparing for the long-term effects climate inaction would have on our most economically disadvantaged stakeholders
