Greenwashers Beware: Using ESG for Good, not Evil

Rehana Nathoo July 11, 2022

We’ve all read the articles – “ESG works”, “ESG fails”, “It’s a hoax”, “It’s our future”. The world of sustainable investing – inclusive of tools like ESG analysis and strategies like Impact Investing – can be complex in their use and frustratingly subjective in their application. An increase in real-time demand from investors plus heightened attention from the SEC and other stakeholders are an opportunity – a call to action.

Join our panel of asset managers, sustainability experts and advisors as we dive deep on the many ways that ESG and Impact are used in practice, how to keep that commitment rigorous while still pushing boundaries, and where we see this field going.
