ESG Conference 2021
Opening keynote: The emergence of ESG and the evolving regulatory landscape
At our ESG Conference 2021, Regulatory Lawyer at Citi Group, Barrie Ingman, explained how he’s seen the regulatory environment around ESG evolve over the past few years
Barrie Ingman has 20 years of experience predicting, managing, and implementing financial regulations. In his latest role as regulatory lawyer for Citi Group, Barrie has had to contend with the fast-evolving regulatory environment surrounding ESG. ESG is an area that Barrie knows well, having written several authoritative articles on the topic, including a regulatory overview of ESG for FactSet.
In this opening keynote, Barrie introduced us to the three tenets of ESG – Environmental, Social and Governance: Where do they come from? How have they evolved over the past few years? And why is it now, in 2021, that they have firmly earned themselves a place on the regulatory agenda. As well as this, Barrie will explain how he’s seen the regulatory environment around ESG evolve over the past few years – and offer experience-led insights on what financial organisations are doing to contend with it.
