Event Details

ESG practitioners use multiple acronyms, terms and practices when they talk about ESG integration.  A common definition often used by the industry for ESG integration is “the explicit and systematic inclusion of ESG factors in investment analysis and investment decisions.” But do all practitioners interpret this in the same way?
In order to help the industry reach a common understanding, CFA Institute and Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) have created a best practice report (Guidance and Case Studies for ESG Integration: Equites and Fixed Income) and three regional reports to help investors understand how they can better integrate ESG factors into their equity, corporate bond, and sovereign debt portfolios. At this event, the results of this project will be presented. Join us to learn from the case studies included in the report and discuss the practical challenges of ESG integration with a panel of expert practitioners.
