|Venue:||Online via Zoom|
|Outline:||In recent years, institutional and retail investors have shown growing interest in two distinct areas: environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing, and indexing. While the reasons for gravitating toward these areas differ, the simultaneous interest in both has led to a proliferation of ESG indexes, and a movement toward adopting these ESG indexes as policy benchmarks.
Yet the many different investment approaches encompassed under the broad umbrella of "ESG investing" are reflected in the significant variety among such indexes, each of which may have distinct ESG data, investment objectives, index construction methods and approaches to impact. It is important for listed companies to understand the construction of indexes and selection process of constituents to be included in the ESG indexes and considered by ESG investors on ESG investing.
This webinar will look at the major ESG indexes and the ways and methodology to be included in them.
