ESG Funds: Supporting the hard to abate transition to Net Zero

Explore whether the hype and promise of ESG funds is supporting the hard to abate transition to Net Zero with Massif Capital’s Will Thomson

If the goal of ESG is to support & drive the corporate transition to net zero/better climate stewardship, is it working? Massive growth is being seen in these ESG funds and there are plenty of bold statements about what they can achieve – but with few simple answers for hard to abate sectors, are ESG strategies simply going to lead to more cost and more barriers to decarbonisation? Find out about Massif Capitals recent report, get some insight on the questions that industrials and investors need to layer on top of ESG screening and find out how we can make better use of the inflow of capital seeking climate impact as well as great returns.

Listen in to this chat about the growth of ESG and how/if it will really drive change where it is needed most.
