About this talk

Unique insights from analysis of data going back 14 years In an age when ESG has become a hygiene factor, companies are understandably keen to paint a picture of steady improvement. Yet comparable long-term data remains elusive, making it difficult to judge overall progress at the market level. To fill this glaring hole, LGIM has created a landmark study analysing ESG Score data going back 14 years – turning fragmentation into aggregation. This same ESG Score powers LGIM’s extensive ESG fund offering, including the Future World index family. In this in-depth session, LGIM will discuss the methodology behind the new study, the surprising outliers that emerged from the analysis, and what the overall direction of travel means for index investors. They will also look at how engagement-led active strategies can complement index approaches by driving real-world change at the biggest emitters while unlocking overlooked sources of returns for investors.
