Environmental, Social and Governance ESG, Explained

MDCRES - Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), Explained

Watch a very exciting panel on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) to learn exactly what it means, how it is impacting the corporate world, and what impacts ESG can make. We will be joined by Matt Fumuso, Financial Advisor at UBS Financial Services, and Rachel Mountin, Director of ESG at DaVita Kidney Care as we engage in this conversation.

Matt and Rachel will explain the evolution of ESG, discuss the components of a strong ESG program, speak to the increased ESG focus of investors, and break down the components by explaining what is involved in environmental stewardship, social leadership, and responsible governance.

The program was hosted by Lindsay Tyson, MDCRES Chair. A brief policy update was presented by Jonathan Rogers, MDCRES Policy Director.

A question and answer session followed the presentation.

This webinar was recorded at the October 21, 2021 meeting of the Metro Denver Chapter of the Colorado Renewable Energy Society.
