ESG, here to stay?

ESG, here to stay?


During this webinar, professor Juan-Pedro Gómez will discuss how firms are tackling ESG initiatives and how they affect their corporate decisions. Does ESG create value for all shareholders? At the expense of the traditional shareholder value? How do we measure ESG achievements? Should CEOs be compensated (or penalized, if they fail) for them?


Let's engage in an honest debate about these questions. We can’t guarantee all the answers, but for sure we will have fun.
