    This webinar will go over the following: 

    1. Introduction to ESG and Invesco
    2. Case study in addressing social issues including diversity and inclusion


    Invesco is committed to adopting and implementing responsible investment principles in a manner that is consistent with their fiduciary responsibilities to clients. They are also committed to their corporate sustainability efforts by being good stewards of the environment and to the local communities in which they serve. 

    ESG concepts are applied in several dimensions, from the products they offer, their investment processes, and corporate behavior. Their approach focuses on integrating ESG risk and opportunity factors into investment decisions, differentiated by asset classes and decentralized by local investment centers. This integration extends to engagement and active ownership, and they discuss material ESG factors.
