Closed door CEO discussion: Where can CEOs be in the driving seat and make a significant personal difference to the net-zero agenda?

Sustainability and net-zero have become buzz words in recent years, with more and more organisations creating net-zero targets and sustainability initiatives. While setting these targets have been welcomed, there have been concerns raised about how committed CEOs have been about the net-zero agenda.

A survey of more than 4,500 CEOs found that the minority of them have been a part of creating their organisation's net-zero target. As the need for more organisations to seriously work towards their net-zero targets, it is imperative that CEOs become a driving force for the change.

What role will CEOs play in delivering the net-zero agenda? How can they be in the driving seat, rather than taking a back seat position? What constraints are CEOs facing when it comes to the net-zero agenda and how can they be overcome?

These were the questions that were tackled in the closed door CEO session held at IMpower Incorporating FundForum 2022.

Featuring the panel discussion including:

  • George Latham, Managing Partner, WHEB Asset Management
  • Jamie Broderick, Board Member, Impact Investing Institute
  • Mark Versey, CEO, Aviva Investors
  • Omar Ali, EMEIA Financial Services Regional Managing Partner, EY
  • Amin Rajan, CEO, thinktank CREATE-Research

At IMpower Incorporating FundForum 2022 in Monaco, industry CEOs participated in closed door, invite only boardroom discussions, to explore some of the most pressing issues the wealth and investment management industry is facing. These discussions gave CEOs the freedom to speak freely about these issues and exchange ideas on how to best handle situations and move forward.

This report gives you an exclusive sneak peek into some of the conversations that were had behind the closed doors of the CEO discussions.
