ESG in India: A Product Theme or an Integral Part of the Investment Process? 

The live webinar is now over. Please fill up the below form to access an on-demand version of the session.

This webinar brings together institutional investors who are actively involved in Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance based Investments, and aims to enable a discussion on the ESG Investment practices in India. 

How companies respond to issues such as financial crisis, climate change, biodiversity, human rights, “licence to operate”, business ethics and corporate governance is becoming as important as traditional financial metrics when evaluating corporate performance, therefore playing a more central role in investors’ decision-making efforts to identify long-term opportunities and risks for companies.

ESG integration entails looking at the risks and opportunities associated with the ESG factors comprehensively that are material for a company or market. Is it enough to apply ESG investing simply as a negative screen or is it essential to make it an integral part of the investment process?
