In many ways, we are in the golden age of ESG: regulators are cracking down, standards are being set and awareness is high. But over the past year, we’ve also seen poor returns for ESG strategies relative to their benchmarks, greenwashing revelations, institutions divesting from ESG strategies and companies reneging on ambitious sustainability claims. How should advisors view this pushback against ESG? How should they address concerns from clients? How should they adjust their due diligence to accommodate today’s ESG environment? And how can they craft portfolios to meet evolving client expectations?

In this virtual roundtable that aired live on Tuesday, May 9, 2023 at 1:00 pm ET, hosted by and Investment Executive, advisors will come away with an understanding of how to be attuned to greenwashing, how to critically evaluate ESG and how to respond to client questions about the merits and risks of ESG analysis.

Moderated by:
Mary Robinson, Director, Research & Investor Networks, Responsible Investment Association

Presented by:

Deborah Debas, Senior Responsible Investment Specialist, Desjardins
Philippe Lavigne, Chief Analyst, Responsible Investment, National Bank Investments
Jenifer Rush, Head of Responsible Investing & Manager Research, SLGI Asset Management Inc.
