Calvert eBook Demonstrates the Value of ESG Investing
Globalization and new sources of information have changed the investment landscape forever, such that it's no longer possible to understand a company without understanding its approach to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors. This is the discussion laid out in Creating Shareholder Value With ESG Integration, a new eBook produced by Calvert.
The eBook features videos and insights with Calvert investment managers and analysts, who discuss how socially responsible investing has moved from goals or ideals toward measurable environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data and its relationship to company performance and corporate risk. In a social media world, for example, ESG failures can forever tarnish a global brand. "A sudden backlash can impact demand and revenue almost overnight," notes Natalie Trunow, Calvert's chief investment officer, equities.
The e-book also discusses ESG engagement with Bennett Freeman, senior vice president of sustainability research and policy. He articulates how an emphasis on ESG analytics can draw corporate attention to ESG risks and potentially open doors to new opportunities through constructive, higher-trust relationships with customers and the community.
Examine Creating Shareholder Value with ESG Integration and discover Calvert's views on the ways in which ESG analysis can uncover potential sources of alpha (added value) while helping to protect investors from the hidden risks that may exist outside a company's financials.
