Gabe Rissman: ESG, Social Impact, and Shareholder Engagement

Gabe Rissman - ESG, Social Impact, and Shareholder Engagement

If you are interested in learning more about environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing, this podcast is for you.

Gabe Rissman talks about ESG investing, what tools are available to measure the environmental and social impact of your investments, why shareholder engagement is important, and how to identify greenwashing in company data.

At the end, Gabe tells a story about his grandma striking up conversations with total strangers in New York elevators. You won’t want to miss it.

One of my favorite quotes from the discussion:

“People being as active with their shareholder votes as they are with their politicalā€¦becauseā€¦corporations touch every aspect of our lives, and there is just so much that they are able to do to improve lives, and they can be pushed to do that by their shareholder base.”
