NEW YORK, Apr. 20 /CSRwire/ - Investment management firms are pledging to build environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis into their financial models, elevating this key stakeholder group in importance as corporations strive to optimize they way they report on sustainability.

Join 3BL Media on May 16 at 12:30 p.m. ET for a free webcast detailing research on the ESG reporting preferences of fund managers and analysts at firms managing trillions in assets. Jane Madden, U.S. managing director of corporate responsibility and sustainability at Burson Cohn & Wolfe and Daniel Nielsen, managing director of Great Lakes Advisors, will present the findings in this free event.


“Our recent ‘Trends in Sustainability Reporting’ webcast drew more than 400 registrants, a sharp increase from past years,” said Dave Armon, CMO of 3BL Media. “Companies are keenly aware of that BlackRock’s Larry Fink and a growing number of Wall Street firms expect to see the volume and quality of ESG reporting to increase.”

Hear details of a white paper produced by Burson Cohn & Wolfe and its sister firm, PSB Research, to identify investors’ consumption preferences for ESG data and contextual content—including organization principles, format and content. 

“We set out to evaluate how investors consume ESG data. We looked at diverse digital approaches, channels and content options to understand the most effective strategies for ESG reporting,” said Madden. Burson Cohn & Wolfe is one of the world’s largest, full-service, global communications agencies with deep expertise in digital and integrated communications, across all industry sectors.

Nielsen, who leads the sustainable and responsible investment and ESG integration strategies at the $7.5 billion Great Lakes Advisors, will discuss how chief sustainability officers can focus on the ESG issues most important for investors, driving collaboration with corporate investor relations functions.

“There is a pretty good gap of what investors are looking for and what corporations have been reporting,” said Nielsen, citing investment in human capital as a key metric for industries such as technology and pharmaceuticals, but not for retail.

This presentation will also include a focus on two platforms designed for companies and NGOs to drive awareness of their corporate responsibility and sustainability initiatives – 3BL Media and ReportAlert.  Dave Armon, CMO of 3BL Media, will moderate the discussion.
