... Michael Lewis, Head of ESG Thematic Research at DWS, was joined by guest speaker Mindy Lubber, CEO and President of Ceres, Roelfien Kuijpers, Global ESG Client Officer, and Francesco Curto, Global Head of Research from DWS.

There are six stages in a transformational investment according to the WEF (Understand, Collaborate, Design, Invest, Transform, Monitor). If DWS' understanding of the risk is now clear, they still face significant challenges to translate the risk in an opportunity because of the ‘fragmented nature’ of water risk.

The objective of this webinar was examining the second stage, ‘collaboration’, and how to ensure that investments in water risk go beyond a risk management approach, but actually make a difference.
