About the Event

This event was co-organised by Assonime (The Association of Italian Public Companies), Bocconi University, the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI) and the European Corporate Governance Research Foundation (ECGRF). It brought together senior academics and thought-leaders in business to discuss a range of current topics. It was part of the multi-year  ECGI  project on  Responsible Capitalism that was launched earlier in  2022. 

The event featured four academic presentations on responsible investing from leading scholars in economics, finance, law, and other disciplines. The studies explored topics such as the motivations of responsible investors, the real impact of responsible investing strategies on firms’ ESG policies, ESG disclosure, and investors’ engagement, among others.

It also featured a panel focused on “ESG engagement in concentrated ownership companies”,  which included both listed state-owned enterprises and family firms. The panel explored whether and how investors can influence the ESG conduct of these firms and what the specific challenges are for them to do so.  The panel included experts from both academia and practice. The afternoon featured the ECGI General Assembly Meeting, the award of the two Working Paper Prizes and the distinguished 2022 Wallenberg Lecture, followed by a dinner.
