Capitalizing on the moment: Nine ways new ESG reporting rules can help investors
PGIM’s global head of ESG offers ideas for a regulatory framework to bring clarity to investors.
The field of sustainability analytics has benefited from better quality and availability of data in recent years, but investors still struggle with a lack of alignment among disclosure standards and reporting frameworks. In general, a mismatch still exists between disclosures in regulatory filings and voluntary disclosures provided by companies, and problems such as greenwashing and ratings divergence among ratings providers complicate matters for analysts.
PGIM Fixed Income’s Co-Head of ESG, John Ploeg, joined CFA Institutes Alpha Summit EMEA for a session on sustainability analytics and integration. During the session, Ploeg shared his perspectives on resolving the challenges with ESG and impact data, as well as insights on what the future may hold for investors who need better tools for sustainability analytics.
