2023 CARE Conference
The third annual Accountability in a Sustainable World conference coincided with the Sustainable Investment Forum, North America (SINVNA), in conjunction with the United Nations Environmental Program Finance Initiative (UNEP-FI). The conference included over 50 academic and non-academic speakers. Minimizing the carbon footprint and to accommodate as many delegates as possible, these sessions were presented virtually.
Continuing upon the successes of the previous two conferences, the 2023 Accountability in a Sustainable World conference delved deeper into regulation, sustainability reporting, capital allocation, and performance metrics. The ongoing conversation answers the immediate need for dialogue among academics and non-academics about sustainability, data and measurement, related assurance, high-quality information to inform responsible investment decisions, and accountability in setting personal, corporate, and public sector goals.
This conference focused on key pillars of a sustainable future: investment, assurance, regulation, and target setting while building and strengthening the links between academia and practice. A main feature of the conference is to generate discourse between academics and non-academics, featuring high-profile, well-informed, often provocative speakers. We devoted a considerable portion of the conference to a discussion of the Politicization of ESG.
