What is ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) investing?

  • Can we use ESG criteria for personal and public policy decisions about investments?
  • How is ESG a tool for investors who want to promote sustainability?
  • How can we use ESG criteria to evaluate the promises of Blackrock and other asset managers?
  • Is it true that investing in so-called “ESG funds” let you “do well and do good?”

Jason Jay, MIT Senior Lecturer & Director of Sustainability Initiative at MIT Sloan, will help us dive deeper into ESG investing.

If you want to dig in before coming, here is a place to start: “The Investor’s Guide to Impact” by Florian Heeb and Julian Kölbel from The Center for Sustainable Finance and Private Wealth, University of Zurich.
