In her presentation titled "The ESG Way: Opening Opportunities and Tackling Concerns", Helena Viñes Fiestas', Head of Sustainability Research, explained how if done smartly, this new market paradigm opens up sound investment opportunities for investors.

This has become increasingly important given that investors are now targets of both traditional financial regulation and broader legislation geared towards making energy transition a reality. Her presentation was ranked amongst the best by conference attendees.

Going forward in 2017, BNP Paribas Investment Partners will continue to engage in the ESG/ SRI arena help our clients navigate the changing landscape.
