|ESG Conference - October 2012|
Annual ESG Conference
Paris - October 11th, 2012
Since October 2011, there has been a steady increase in regulation and initiatives encouraging investors to take ESG issues into account. The European Commission has drawn up its roadmap in favour of corporate responsibility. In France, the Grenelle II law on ESG reporting and implementation of ESG criteria by asset management firms has come into strength. The Rio summit was also an occasion for highlighting the need of ESG reporting for global companies. All these changes in regulation are leading to the consideration of Integrated reporting into the debate.
