Event Details

Traveler’s Institute Wednesdays With Woodward

A company’s ability to create long-term value depends not only on its financial strategy, but on the way it manages various economic, environmental and social issues – in a word, sustainability. Hear from former SEC commissioner Paul Atkins and Travelers’ Chief Sustainability Officer Yafit Cohn about why investors, customers, and employees are increasingly focused on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors when evaluating companies, and what you can do to keep up with these trends. Speakers will also discuss the current regulatory environment and anticipated disclosure requirements, and what it could mean for publicly traded companies.
