Is ESG outdated? Already?

Wednesday, March 8, 2023
Room 716
This session will look at the successes and failures of ESG as a measure that holds companies accountable to ‘do the right thing’. Is it a useful tool that allows investors to evaluate firms based on their environmental, social record and their governance? Or, should ESG, as The Economist magazine has suggested, be boiled down to one simple measure: Emissions? And are ESG ratings only adding to confusion and costs?

Panelist will discuss the current ESG ratings systems, whether ESG should indeed be boiled down to one measure (emissions), and make recommendations to improve overall accountability.
