Earlier today, Edelman Smithfield hosted a virtual event featuring a panel of high-profile senior executives exploring the challenge of integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into corporate and investor decision making. The discussion focussed on whether being mindful of ESG and stakeholder considerations involves impossible trade-offs at a time when the second wave of COVID-19 is putting businesses under considerable pressure.

Panellists included:

  • Chuka Umunna, Head of ESG, Edelman, Panel Moderator

  • Sheila Patel, Chair, Goldman Sachs Asset Management

  • John Allan CBE, Chairman, Tesco PLC/ Barratt Developments PLC, and Vice President, CBI

  • Saker Nusseibeh CBE, CEO, Federated Hermes International

  • Nadja Picard, Global Head of Reporting, PwC
