  • Webinar: "The climate deserves better than 12%!" - 21 September

    Webinar: "The climate deserves better than 12%!"

    For several years the financial industry has been multiplying initiatives to measure companies' climate performance and engagement. Scarcely a day goes by without a new fund or index being launched on the basis of this climate data, with the primary declared objective of the investments' positive impact on the transition towards a low-carbon economy.

    However, a study conducted as part of the EDHEC-Scientific Beta 'Advanced ESG and Climate Investing' research chair shows that the reality of traditional climate investing strategies does not live up to the promises and the communication from their promoters.

    To shed light on this question, EDHEC is organising a virtual presentation of the portfolio greenwashing study on September 21.

    Two sessions of this webinar will be held on September 21 at different times.
