Managing Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) Risks

Authored by

Mark Beasley, Deloitte Professor of ERM at NC State University, interviews Steve Dreyer, Head of Investor Communications – Americas, S&P Global Ratings, about emerging attention being placed on how organizations are managing environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) risks. While risks related to environmental, social, and governance issues tend to reveal themselves over longer time horizons than typical credit rating influencers, bond and equity investors are becoming increasingly focused on how these longer term risks may have an impact on an entity’s ability to repay its debt and they are asking credit rating agencies to provide additional insight. S&P’s focus on this is in response to growing investor, employee, and regulator interest in how companies think about environmental, social, and governance risks.
