Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues have become increasingly important in financial markets, including derivatives. Recognizing this importance, the European Capital Markets Institute (ECMI) of the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) published a paper in July 2020 in cooperation with ISDA on the role of derivatives in sustainable finance. ISDA’s ESG and Derivatives virtual conference will explore policy responses to ESG, as well as look at recent progress and initiatives.
