Sustainability and the IRO – The Data Challenge

A conversation at Bloomberg with Erika Karp, founder and CEO of Cornerstone Capital Group, and Greg Elders, senior ESG analyst with Bloomberg Intelligence

Investors say they need measurability and predictability around ESG factors. Are they getting it? Elders points out that the usage of ESG data has risen 50 percent per year since Bloomberg launched its ESG product in 2009, with around 20,000 regular users today. Karp points to the importance of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board, where she’s a founding board member, as well as the GRI and IIRC.
