What is ESG Greenwashing?

Carolyn Allwin July 13, 2022

Bloomberg estimated that by the end of 2022, there would be $41 trillion in ESG investments worldwide. As ESG has taken this stronghold in the US, concerns of the mislabeling of funds and misinformation of investors have become a focus of the SEC. Addressing greenwashing extends beyond ethical considerations. It relies on specific and, sometimes, obscure metrics. This session will draw on expertise from leaders in the field to discuss obstacles in ESG data collection, as well as the work that is being done to overcome them in order to make this information accessible for institutions and everyday investors alike.

Purpose and Desired Outcome

Our purpose is to provide transparency regarding the process and standards of ESG data collection. We plan to help develop a general sense of awareness surrounding ESG data, inform spectators of the implications of this lack of standardization, and finally, empower audience members to form their perspective on this important issue as domestic and global regulations are starting to take shape.
