Why You Can’t Ignore the ESG Movement

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) focused investors have moved mainstream.  On this week’s episode we interview Patrick Bryden, Director, Equity Research at Scotiabank. Pat coauthored a must-read report titled “The Rise of ESG in Investment Research – In Search of the Right Elements”. His report makes a compelling case for ESG focused investing, referencing research that shows meaningful outperformance for companies that are more sustainable and diverse.  We also cover the state of corporate ESG reporting today, what investors are looking for, and how companies can get started.
