Center Director Professor Dan Esty participated in State Street’s ESG Forum earlier this fall. The forum, held in Boston, brought together experts in ESG investing and explored the challenges and opportunities faced by investors in the era of climate change.
Professor Esty spoke on The Transition to a Low-Carbon World panel. Other panelists included Jay Koh, CEO of The Lightsmith Group; Bridget Realmuto LaPerla, Head of ESG Research at State Street Associates; and Nathalie Wallace, ESG Strategist at State Street Global Advisors. The panelists discussed the current state of climate investing and what new opportunities lie ahead.
