Changing What's Possible

Wednesday 8 September 2021
12:00 - 1:00pm
In light of the evolving Covid-19 situation, this Lunchtime Seminar will be delivered only as a webinar. The health and well-being of RiskNZ’s Members are paramount and offering the Seminar as webinar-only is the most socially conscious choice as we take measures to practice social distancing.


Understanding why Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is critical, and how to use and implement ESG.

Earlier this year Marsh released its first comprehensive Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) Report, “Changing What’s Possible”. The report highlights the complex challenges we all face as we work to advance our ESG priorities.

Let’s have a conversation on how to become more resilient, more sustainable, and move the dial on our ESG performance.

Let’s discuss how we identify existing and forward looking ESG risks, assess the financial impact of ESG exposures, embed ESG into our existing ERM frameworks, use indices & ratings to assess ESG performance and most importantly demonstrate our success. Join Patrick Hunter & Sophie Griffin as they open up the conversation on the important matter of ESG.

Brought to you by Marsh the world’s leading professional services firm in the areas of insurance, risk, strategy and people.
