Considerations implementing ESG

Most asset owners and asset managers are currently developing and implementing ESG policies. An ESG framework consists of many pieces and clients invite us to help them design or improve some parts.

What strikes us is the wide bandwidth of different ESG approaches and the broad array of implementation strategies. These differences are not surprising, because there are many components to implementing a coherent ESG policy. It is also not surprising because the DNA of these asset owners is different. Some are true ESG leaders and believers, others are followers or even laggards, and some are only regulatory-driven.
