ESG as an Investment Game Changer
/ George Serafeim
Integrating ESG criteria represents a new paradigm for investors, but what has changed and what are the fresh insights? George Serafeim of Harvard Business School and a pioneering thought leader around ESG materiality presents findings from his foundational research on driving, measuring and communicating corporate performance and social impact. With new research on a defined carbon factor, Professor Serafeim discusses how investor behavior has influenced stock returns over the past ten years as expressed through active capital flows, and what investors need to know about regional decarbonization strategies.
