Afternoon session – Long-term Sustainable Value Creation

29 June 2020, 13:00-14:00
Online webinar, broadcasted live from Pakhuis de Zwijger, Amsterdam

COVID-19, climate change, digitalisation and geopolitics are all rapidly and fundamentally changing the risk and opportunity landscape for investors. More than ever companies need to rethink how they create value in a sustainable way. Does this require a new relation between investors and companies? How can asset owners and managers position themselves for the turbulent developments ahead? What are the advantages of more direct relations between investors and companies? What metrics can be used to focus the dialogue on long-term value creation rather than short-term financial metrics that may hide large future risks?

In this afternoon session on Long-term Sustainable Value Creation appeared:
 Mats Andersson (former CEO AP4), presented the Swedish experience of close cooperation between investors and corporations;
– Professor Dirk Schoenmaker (Erasmus University), presented his new model for measuring long term sustainable value creation;
– André Snellen (board Pensioenfonds Detailhandel and chair of the ‘social responsible investments committee’ of the federation of Dutch Pension Funds) and Joanne Kellerman (chair PFZW) reacted to their presentations;
– Masja Zandbergen (Head Sustainability Robeco) moderated the session.

The webinar was broadcasted live from the studio of Pakhuis de Zwijger in Amsterdam.

This meeting is part of the Finance and the Common Good program of the Sustainable Finance Lab and Socires, and was organized in collaboration with the Sustainable Pension Investments Lab and the Erasmus Platform for Sustainable Value Creation Rotterdam.
