ESG and CFP Academic Research Webinar

Wednesday, February 17, 2016 l 9:00 AM EST - 10:00 AM EST

In this one hour webinar presented by Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management and the University of Hamburg will present the findings from new academic research that analyses over 2,200 studies, which is the most extensive research to date, on whether integrating ESG into the investment process has had a positive effect on corporate financial performance (CFP), whether the effect was stable over time, how a link between ESG and CFP differs across regions and asset classes and whether any specific sub-category of E, S or G had a dominant influence on CFP. PRI collaborated with Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management and the University of Hamburg for the development of the white paper by providing support on the focus of the publication and through the communication of academic research insights. The paper has received growing coverage, most recently from Forbes, Responsible Investor and Environmental Finance.
