With a focus on listed companies, emphasis will also be placed on the role of the financial system, the stock exchange, and national authorities in achieving social and environmental sustainability in combination with economic development – guided by ESG criteria.
Finally, the discussion will be directed towards exploring the possibilities of integrating ESG issues into the undergraduate and/or postgraduate curriculum of Greek universities through a dialogue between academics and students.
