In addition to some outstanding presentations, the one-day conference will feature roundtable discussions with dedicated corporate experts from all four countries. 

Budapest, March 31, 2021 - In April, 2021 Hungarian Business Leaders Forum (HBLF) invites SRI (social responsible investment) and ESG (environmental, social and governance) leaders of the V4 countries, as well as market players who are in connection with the investment community to participate in a full day conference. The objective of the event is to understand today’s guidelines and challenges, and how these new investment formats move global markets.

HBLF aims to establish a well functioning forum in the V4 region, in order to foster social responsible investments (SRI). The V4 ESG Conference online event is the first step in this process, enabling corporate and stock market professionals and decision makers to share their experience and good practices on ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) topics that contribute to sustainable development.

The English-language conference, to be held on April 27, 2021 is organized online due to the pandemic, but according to organizers this circumstance has created further opportunities. This way corporate decision makers from the four countries, as well as prominent international experts are both able to participate more easily. During panels important topics such as climate risk of investments, ESG research trends, the role of stock markets in the transparency of listed ESG companies and ESG regulations are going to be discussed.
