DJSI Team Acceleration Training in collaboration with RobecoSAM

In 2016, increased transparency on ESG aspects towards investors has amplified the importance of ESG ratings. Why not take charge with the most valued benchmark of all: the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI). Help your investors fill in the blanks, and get credit for the efforts that your company is taking. To get going, RobecoSAM and Finch & Beak are hosting an exclusive 2-day DJSI Team Acceleration Training in Z├╝rich on 15-16 February 2017, specifically designed for companies that are not yet actively participating in the DJSI.

What you need to know

  • Purpose: Prepare for DJSI participation and improve sustainability performance
  • Target audience: Sustainability teams of mid- and senior level, as well as directors in the areas of corporate responsibility, investor relations and sustainability and their teams
  • Dates: Wednesday 15 February and Thursday 16 February 2017
  • Location: Novotel Zürich City-West, Schiffbaustrasse 13, Zürich, Switzerland
  • Cost: € 1,995,- for individual participants, with the opportunity to bring up to two colleagues for € 1,295,- each (excl. VAT)

During the two days, teams start off with practitioner cases, and then are challenged to build the case for change during a change simulation. Detailed and practical information will be shared on the real life workings of the DJSI process. After the training, teams will have an increased understanding about how to become successful at DJSI and what the impact on investors is, and leave with an improved DJSI implementation roadmap.

Join us!
The DJSI Team Acceleration Training is a unique event with limited seats available. Book your team before 8 February 2017 via nikkie@finchandbeak.com or call +31 6 28 02 18 80.
