3:55 - 5:10 Panel Discussion: Are investors getting the information they want from businesses?

Context: The sustainable investment community relies on performance data to make investment decisions; this is increasingly important in emerging and developing economies, where the boom in investment opportunities combined with significant sustainability challenges, such as climate change, health and human rights, presents investors with new risks and opportunities. Despite being one of the main audiences that companies target with their sustainability reports, investors are also one of the least well-understood and hardest to access.
