About this course
This course will provide a fundamental understanding of ESG frameworks and standards, their advantages and disadvantages, and how they are used by companies to establish an ESG strategy.
The course starts with a brief history of the origins of ESG, fast forwarding to how ESG became prominent in today’s business landscape. You then learn about ESG frameworks, the rating agencies and industry associations, and the business case for implementing these standards from the vantage point of both investors and companies.
You will examine how and why the field and language around ESG continue to change and discuss the current big questions and controversies in the ESG space, such as the role of ‘impact’ and the effects of the ESG backlash in the US.
