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 Zürich on 15-16 February 2017, specifically designed for companies that are not yet actively participating in the DJSI.

Earlier this year, RobecoSAM already announced its new partnership with Bloomberg, a principal provider of business and financial information. As a result, the performance of the Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) of all companies that have been appraised will be accessible by the Bloomberg licensees. This might come as a shock to those companies that have been assessed - often without their knowledge - based on publicly available information only.

INSEAD and 500 Startups conducted a research study based on the world's 500 biggest public companies that highlights what we can learn from past corporate experiences.

Sustainability Program Can Increase Target Price by 15%

The valuation impact of sustainability can be very high. ESG based value driver analysis led to a target price impact of -19% at Anglo American and +23% at Chr. Hansen. However, when talking to Investor Relations executives and Board members of listed companies, a frequently heard statement is “Why bother, our investors are not interested in sustainability”.

But how is that possible with the level of assets under management of ESG integrated funds rising beyond €6 trillion in Europe alone?
