Data-Driven ESG Investing
How Metrics and Data Analysis Drive Credibility
May 7th, 2021 11:30AM - 12:30 PM EDT
Companies face tricky decisions in order to meet oft-contradictory financial, environmental, social, and corporate governance goals. Large corporations and investment firms increasingly implement ESG goals and guidelines to placate eco-conscious consumers and other stakeholders. But critical voices insist this is little more than ‘greenwashing’, and much more remains to be done.
In this webinar Abigail Dean, the Global Head of Strategic Insights for Nuveen Real Estate, will explain how Nuveen is bringing credibility to its ESG initiatives through metrics and data analysis. She will discuss how Nuveen Real Estate set its goal of Net Zero Carbon emissions by 2040, as well as the process of establishing the timeline and measuring the success of the campaign. She will also explore the role of big data in assessing the market demand for ESG investing, and the significance of climate change modeling.
