See why ESG goals aren’t filtering down to day-to-day investment decisions

Despite aspirational pledges and high-level goals to integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles more fully into the investment process, Empirical Research Partners found that ESG goals are not influencing day-to-day investment decisions.

See why there hasn’t been a noticeable increase in ESG-related discussion on quarterly earnings calls over the past six years in the white paper, ESG Strategy: Lights, Camera, Action?

Between 2010 and 2016, Empirical Research Partners used natural language processing (NLP) techniques to track the frequency of ESG discussions in company conference calls to determine if ESG topics were making the top-of-mind issues that company managements, their shareholders, and the analysts charged with covering care most about.

Please note: this white paper is intended for a buy-side audience only.
