Asset Management Working Group

Publishes "Show Me The Money: Linking Environmental, Social and Governance Issues to Company Value"

13 July, 2006

 

"Show Me The Money", the Asset Management Working Group’s second report in its materiality series, draws on the expertise of more than 22 different financial services firms internationally, including sell side research houses, asset management firms and an investment consultancy. The most salient factors, linking environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues to company value, have been extracted from more than 1,000 pages of financial analysis.

 

 

This report is targeted at CEO types and bankers who think that green and sustainable / ESG / CSR can’t be measured and if so is not material to value.  The compilation of reports from investment analysis departments in Europe says that is just not true – it is real, it can be measured and it adds value.  The cases are really interesting and will be great for use in presentations to skeptical audiences (i.e. most of them).
