Sustainability Leaders: Colin le Duc, Generation Investment Management
In 2021 we were proud to promote Kerry Stares as our Responsible Business Partner, reflecting how critical responsible business and environmental, social and governance (or ESG) issues are for the success and sustainability of our firm and how critical they are for our clients.
Kerry works with stakeholders across our business to understand and improve our own environmental and social impact as a business. She works with our clients to understand their ESG priorities and to ensure that we are providing them with the right advice and support, both in our traditional role as advisors and as business partners. She also works with our intermediaries and wider networks to explore opportunities for thought leadership and collaboration in the complex and fast moving world of ESG.
Kerry’s conversations are so rich in insights from our clients and intermediaries - many of whom are true sustainability leaders - that we decided to record and share them as a podcast series.
We hope that you enjoy and find them useful – please share your feedback.
The next episode in this series is a conversation with Colin le Duc, founding partner of Generation Investment Management, one of the world’s leading sustainable investment funds. Kerry and Colin discuss all things sustainable investment, including why, in Colin’s view, the commercial case for taking a sustainable approach to business and investment is definitively made, the pressing challenge of greenwashing, the increasing pressure on private companies to demonstrate strong ESG credentials and the future of ESG law and regulation.
