Measuring Impact

About this talk

Over the past two years, with the unprecedented chaos caused by the global health crisis, focus on sustainability and ethical issues has continued to sharpen - resulting in a huge uptake of ESG investing opportunities. As interest for ESG investment solutions grows among investors, the financial industry needs to establish ways of measuring impact. Current measurement processes are typically inconsistent and lack any link to tangible outcomes. Because of the breadth of issues packed into the ESG acronym, and since stakeholders often have different priorities when it comes to a company’s overall ESG package, measuring a company’s ESG impact is no easy feat. In Episode 5 of ESG Innovation Hub, we’re exploring impact measurement strategies and discussing the challenges that arise when evaluating ESG performance for investors. Topics for discussion include: - How can we measure the long-term impact of an investment solution? - Managing conflicting priorities: which stakeholder’s needs should be prioritised when evaluating ESG ratings? - Best practices for delivering consistent, reliable ESG reports - is ESG intelligence the answer? Confirmed speakers: - Abraham Lioui, Professor of Finance, EDHEC Business School - Tom Adams, Co-Founder, 60 Decibels The ESG Innovation Hub is hosted by Georgina Mitchell, Consultant, WelllHouse Consulting
