CBS Library is hosting a series of presentations about ESG data.
Issues such as climate change, diversity, human rights, “license to operate,” business ethics, and corporate governance are at the forefront of public and political attention. Investors are increasingly demanding that these issues are factored into their portfolios, and financial professionals are differentiating their services using environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria.
What are the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Criteria?
Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria are a set of operational standards for companies that socially conscious investors use to screen potential investments.
- Environmental criteria consider how a company performs as a steward of nature.
- Social criteria examine how it manages relationships with employees, suppliers, customers, and the communities where it operates.
- Governance deals with leadership, executive pay, audits, internal controls, and shareholder rights.
