Ian’s Insight: Decoupling of Emissions and ESG

All ESG considerations go through three broad phases—activism, discovery, and execution. First, we see public debate of whether to address an issue or not. Once the issue graduates to the discovery phase, companies look for the right initiatives to solve the problem. Finally, the market figures out how to address the issue and achieve a real investment return. Ian believes emissions will proceed into phase two this year.

“We’re going to see an acceleration of the decoupling of emissions from most of the other considerations in ESG.”
