ESG Today: Value Creation Is Our Focus

At the Milken 2020 Global Conference, Lori Heinel, State Street Global Advisors’ Deputy Global Chief Investment Officer, joined a panel of asset management executives and an oil industry leader to discuss Department of Labor regulations, company disclosures, standardized metrics, rising COVID and other social concerns, and a wide range of other ESG topics. During the session, titled “Beyond Financials: The Importance of ESG,” Lori explained why long-term value creation remains the focus of ESG integration, and how staying above the fray and putting value at the forefront allow investors to take advantage of opportunities to improve risk-adjusted returns.
