G&A Institute Sponsors the North American Launch of 2023 Carrot & Sticks Research

In September 2023 during Climate Week in NYC, G&A partnered with GRI and Baruch College/CUNY to host the North American launch event for the updated 2023 “Carrots & Sticks” research.

This research contains an in-depth analysis of regulations and policies from over 130 countries, nearly 80 international and regional organizations, and in 38 languages of mandatory and voluntary policies that shape the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) impact of businesses worldwide.

A Retreat Years in the Making and Well Worth the Wait

G&A’s senior team members spent quality time together on an experiential retreat in New York City in October, where many long-time colleagues met in person for the first time.

We went to the roots of ESG investing with a trip to the New York Stock Exchange. We enhanced our sustainability knowledge with a tour of One Vanderbilt Place, our client SL Green’s state-of-the-art LEED Platinum certified building, and did a guided climate change boat tour around Manhattan. We made time for team-building exercises too, facing off in a chopstick skills challenge and cooperating to make ravioli at the Institute of Culinary Education. After all, teamwork is our bread and butter!

We look forward to the adventures 2024 holds for us as a group and in the great relationships we enjoy with our clients.
