Annual Practice Forum

Each year in March, CSB hosts our invitation-only, Annual Practice Forum. This event attracts 200+ executives and investors who work in fields related to corporate sustainability, ESG investing, and/or sustainable finance.


In March 2020, the NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business (CSB) hosted its third annual Practice Forum, Building the Financial Case for Return on Sustainability Investment (ROSI).


We are grateful to HSBC Bank USA President and CEO Michael Roberts as the 2020 Keynote Speaker along with HSBC Bank USA's support as Lead Sponsor, Glenmede and Investindustrial as Supporting Sponsors, and Harvard Business Review as Media Partner.

About the Annual CSB Practice Forum

This invitation-only event focuses on how to identify, track, and monetize sustainability returns driven by innovation, operational efficiency, employee engagement, brand enhancement, and risk mitigation, for better decision-making by the C-suite and investors. At the first two Practice Forums, we hosted more than 180 actively engaged participants. We are pleased to have hosted over 200 familiar and new faces at the 2020 Practice Forum in March.

Note: The Practice Forum is invitation-only and intended for executives and investors who work in fields related to corporate sustainability, ESG investing, and/or sustainable finance.
