Cohesive Action Is Needed to Really Crack the ESG Code
Andrew Dyson opines on the current state of ESG and warns of the risks of divergence.
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing means different things to different people. As investors look to diversify their portfolios with responsible and sustainable investments, they require more than one-size-fits-all strategies to meet their evolving needs, and shouldn’t be faced with compromised returns. While there is no “right way” to approach ESG investing, we actively manage for ESG opportunities and risks, positioning our clients for success in the long term.
At PGIM, we believe that doing the right thing for our clients, our people and our communities leads to better results for all stakeholders. We approach responsible investing in a manner that is consistent with Prudential Financial Inc.'s (PFI's) long-term commitment to sustainability. And, as active investors, we strive to embed ESG best practices throughout our investment, risk and talent management processes, while delivering investment performance and staying true to our role as a fiduciary and risk manager.
PGIM’s strong foundation was built on delivering financial returns and making a positive impact on the world, and began over 145 years ago. Our parent company, PFI, is committed to solving the financial challenges of our changing world and is a recognized leader in purpose-driven business, investing and ESG practices.
