ESG Latam is a conference held jointly by Apimec - Association of Capital Market Analysts and Investment Professionals and the PRI - Principles for Responsible Investment, aimed at investment professionals, companies, regulators and all other stakeholders. The objective is to discuss the integration of the Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) criteria in the analysis, decisions and monitoring of investments. This year, in its fifth edition, the theme addressed will be "Roads to 2050", aiming to aggregate initiatives and to foment the discussion on how to make feasible the financing for the transition to a low carbon economy and to reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The debates will focus on sectoral discussions and themes related to sustainable development in various sectors of the economy. There will also be a launch of a study prepared by the PRI & CFA Institute, and Apimec will present its project to include ESG criteria in the certification of analysts.
To celebrate this 5th edition, in partnership with B3, there will be the Bell Ring ceremony at the opening of the trading session.
This event will grant two credits in Apimec’s Continuing Education Program (PEC)
