In the summer of 2013, oekom research investigated for the first time the way in which the sustainable capital markets' demands were influencing corporate sustainability. Four years later we asked again, this time surveying more than 3,600 companies - what impact the responsible investment markets have on company sustainability management.
Quite a lot has changed - not only in regard to how companies perform in this area and their appreciation of the importance of sustainability, but also with respect to the underlying conditions and requirements resulting from standardisations, sustainability initiatives and both national and international legislation.
Sustainable capital markets have also enjoyed enormous worldwide growth and we will be hearing from leading investors on how they measure the impact of their investments.
So please join us for the presentation of the oekom Impact Study 2017 and learn how sustainability-orientated investors are influencing businesses' sustainability activities.
