Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing has catapulted in popularity and importance in recent years. As stakeholders call on companies across industries to incorporate ESG strategies into their missions and models, a broad - and often, ambiguous - understanding of this new and growing field has emerged. As such, the “ESG” label has come to take on different definitions for different stakeholders, opening the door to misalignment, the potential for investment risk, and uncertainty about the winners and losers of ESG investing.

Join Chicago Booth’s Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation and the Stigler Center for the Study of the Economy and the State for the new event series, which will seek to investigate the ways in which ESG is, is not, and could be a force for social and environmental impact.
