Finance for a Better World

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria are becoming important for investors, consumers, managers, and regulators. Increasingly, many institutional investors and other stakeholders strongly favor investment in companies that provide ESG performance reporting. However, due to the ESG framework’s relatively new status in the mainstream, many businesses struggle to measure and report these metrics to key staklders. There is a strong need to prepare students to incorporate ESG thinking in their careers and help businesses carry out ESG investing goals. This project will develop curriculum in finance courses that introduces students to new advances in the ESG framework and sustainability in the business world.
