What use is there in having a good ESG score? Some answers from current academic research


발표요약문

Over the last decades the concept of ESG, an acronym, which stands for environmental, social, and governance, has vastly gained in importance as a concrete way of measuring the corporate social responsibility of companies. All over the world, there are many institutions, such as specialize rating agencies, which issue ESG scores regarding a wide range of companies on a regular basis. ESG scores are quantifiable variables and therefore very suited for empirical research. ESG scores exist in different variants. While typically there is one score for the environmental (E), the social (S), and the governance (G) dimension each, these variables often are also aggregated into one overall score. Additionally, some ESG score providers dig deeper into the details and publish several sub-scores of the three dimensions, such as, for instance, a variable measuring the reduction of emission by a company (as a sub-score in the E dimension). In his talk, professor Dorfleitner will present finance-related insights from his own research utilizing ESG scores and their mentioned sub-scores. The topics will include a comparison of the scores of different ESG rating providers as well as the challenging of earlier research findings based on these different ESG ratings. A special emphasis will be placed on the long-term financial performance of diverse ESG dimensions, including the answer to the question of whether it pays for a company to invest in emission reduction beyond the legally required level. Another aspect that will be analyzed in detail is the impact of ESG on credit risk and thereby on the costs of debt financing. Last but not least, professor Dorfleitner also will touch on the issue of ESG scandals.
