Integrating ESG into quarterly earnings calls
Aula, Stockholm School of Economics
Firms increasingly integrate sustainability into corporate strategies and argue there is a business case for sustainability. In one of the prime conversation points with the stock market, the quarterly earnings call, this is however rarely manifested. Firms often say that the audience in the call, the analysts, are not interested and do not ask questions. Analysts, on the other hand, say that without firms providing more specific ESG information, they cannot integrate it into their valuation models.
Welcome to this seminar on May 8, 16.00-17.30
Aulan, Handelshögskolan i Stockholm, Sveavägen 65.
