JONES DAY TALKS®: ESG – The Opportunities and the Risks
ESG—Environmental, Social, and Governance—investing is attracting the attention of pension funds, hedge funds, sell-side analysts, large money managers, lenders and banks, and political interest groups and activists, all of whom can exercise their shareholder rights to push changes through corporations.
Jones Day's Linda Hesse and David Woodcock talk about how ESG is received in corporate boardrooms, and what the opportunities and risks are for companies engaged in ESG initiatives.
