It was great to have such an engaged and enthusiastic audience at yesterday’s Scotsman Investment Conference in Edinburgh. Despite the current tough financial climate, session discussions were energetic, informative, and positive about the current and future direction of impact investing on people, place, and planet.
Our panel discussion examined the role of ESG measurement and what more companies and investors can do to target their resources for greatest return, whilst identifying the material risk and opportunities for their business. Advice for new investors and companies on
the ESG journey included ensuring transparency in their reporting, taking targeted actions to mitigate external business risks and the need to maintain focus on emerging global legislation and policy frameworks.
A “fireside chat” with our Chair, a former Chancellor of the Exchequer, closed the Conference, providing delegates and guests with greater insight into Crosswind Developments and our ambitious vision for Edinburgh.
Another successful Crosswind stakeholder event reinforcing the power of partnership, collaboration and engagement in delivering economic transformation for Edinburgh and Scotland.
