ESG Conference

Use your power

ESG has exploded into the mainstream with incredible force. The consensus is unanimous — investing responsibly is key to the long-term performance of our investments.

Pension funds have a new responsibility, bringing new opportunities to make positive change, new demands on reporting and new challenges for data-gathering and decision-making.

The power is in your hands. Join us at the new PLSA ESG Conference 2021.

Our new ESG Conference will bring together the whole of the £2 trillion UK pensions investment chain.

An online three day programme - with a dynamic mix of keynote speeches, educational sessions, topic deep dives, and quick-fire updates, built around key themes and hot topics - will cover every angle of ESG. It's dedicated exclusively to the pensions sector.

This is the place to engage with your peers on the issues that matter most. We look forward to seeing you online at our new ESG Conference in June 2021.
