Paul D. McHugh Director of ESG Research

“Sustainability factors – economic, environmental, social and governance criteria – help drive a company’s returns over the long term. Companies that embed sustainability into their business strategy are more innovative and are able to generate incremental growth opportunities, enhance operating efficiencies, and reduce risk. In short, it’s a proxy for management quality. ”
