Institutional customer demand for ESG information is rippling through entire supply chains, impacting publicly traded as well as privately held suppliers. In a poll taken at a recent event, 60 percent of attendees indicated they wanted to hear from an asset owner/investor to learn how they use environmental, social, and governance (ESG) information.
In response, AIAG’s September 25th Speaker Series features an in-person panel discussion with members of the investment community. The panel will share initial research findings on investor perspectives of ESG ratings, as well as the approaches asset managers and owners — as well as investors and research firms — take to evaluate ESG information that will inform their investment decisions.
The most influential requests are coming from organizations that directly participate in financial markets. These can include large asset owners (CalPERS, NY State); asset managers (BlackRock, State Street, Neuberger Berman); and specialized ESG research firms (Bloomberg, MSCI, Sustainalytics).
