Abstract

The case is designed for a classroom discussion on Environmental, Social and Governance, popularly known as ESG phenomenon in the financial world. Targeted at the various stakeholders of the financial world such as Analysts, Financial Institutions, Companies, Investors, Pension Funds Trustees, Consultants and Financial Advisors, Regulators, Stock Exchanges and Non-Governmental Organisations, the case discusses about the evolution and growth of ESG Investing, a term that used widely to define investments (by the institutional investors at large) aimed at delivering positive returns and at the same time creating long-term impact on both society and environment. In spite of reaching a whopping level of USD30 trillion globally, there were numerous challenges faced by the various financial stakeholders in ESG Investing. Among all, the tepid response of the financial institutions, lack of standardised and frequent data on ESG metrics and fragmented and incomplete information and clients' unwillingness hampered the adoption of ESG Investing.
