About this talk

Investors have become increasingly concerned about the risks of companies with poor ESG performance. Such companies could become very hard to sell and adversely affect the financial performance of a portfolio. Competitive positioning and public perceptions may be affected along the way. Wouldn't therefore be useful to have a database of companies that have been excluded by Pension Funds, Asset Managers, Insurance companies and Banks? It would provide not only much-needed transparency but could also put additional pressure on those identified companies to change their practices. A new website launched last month by a coalition of NGOs provides exactly that – a list of companies that are blacklisted by investors. It also includes a classification of reasons for the exclusions. To date, the tracker lists a total of 4532 companies that have been excluded by 87 Financial Institutions in 16 countries. The most common reason for exclusion is Climate/fossil fuels, followed by controversial weapons, and tobacco. Kees Kodde – Project Lead Fair Finance International – and a co-author of the “Financial Exclusions Tracker” will show us how to use the tool. Please join us on Wednesday 13th December at 3:30 pm GMT to learn more about the FINANCIAL EXCLUSIONS TRACKER Moderated by Dana Hanby, Managing Director, ESG Nexus.
