The ESG Forum 2024 will be held on Thursday, February, 29, at the Gibson Hotel, Dublin, and is sponsored by PwC and SustainIQ. 

Organisations are now operating in a changing world, with the growing challenges of climate change, transitioning to a circular economy, and inequality. There is now a need to consider environmental and social considerations and have the necessary governance framework in place to support them.

The ESG Forum, organised by Environment Ireland, will bring together visiting and local expert speakers to discuss the challenges and opportunities of ESG. The Forum will also feature dedicated Q&A sessions and networking with key stakeholders. Book your place to join us at the ESG Forum to meet with fellow leaders in sustainability.
