Myth-busting ESG: what's in it for me? 19th October, 2:30pm

You may have been following the working group on social housing ESG reporting, which in May published its White Paper Social Housing - Building a sector standard approach to ESG reporting.

THFC has been a member of this working group and strongly supports the establishment of a sector-wide standard for ESG reporting, which will help housing associations capture impact, attract investment, and continue to provide much needed affordable housing.

We want to ensure that this new reporting framework will be inclusive and accessible, and this way become truly sector-wide. Perceptions of ESG as a capital markets issue still linger, but we believe there is a golden opportunity for the sector to lead the way on ESG reporting, and that this will help meet the complex challenges associations face in the future.

 Join us for our one-off, free webinar, ’Myth-busting ESG: what’s in it for me?’, hosted by Trowers & Hamlins, to unpack in more detail ESG and the implications of a new sector-wide reporting framework.

 The webinar will be held on Monday 19th October at 14:30pm.

The webinar follows on from the success of the first four to cover questions including:

  • What does ESG mean in practice for housing associations?

  • What are the benefits of a sector-wide reporting standard?

  • What does it mean to demonstrate impact?

  • How will ESG tie in with future changes in the affordable housing space?

  • Why adopt the new framework early?

Discussing these topics will be:

  • Chair: Sarah Forster, CEO, The Good Economy

  • Andy Smith, Head of Housing Impact, The Good Economy

  • David Montague, CEO, L&Q

  • Stuart Fisher, Exec. Director of Resources, Accord

  • Piers Williamson, CEO, The Housing Finance Corporation

  • James Tickell, Founding Partner, Campbell Tickell
