Can the SEC Mainstream ESG Investing?

A complimentary webinar presented by ETF BILD Project

As more companies focus on implementing ESG (environmental, social and governance) into their businesses, financial advisors are growing their awareness of how to responsibly offer sustainable product offerings to ESG portfolio investments given the ever-evolving regulation mandates. This webinar examines factors investors should consider when making changes to their standard practices and possible constraints SEC oversight may create regarding disclosure requirements.

Topics of discussion include:

  • ESG – An overview and how it differs from values investing
  • What is greenwashing?
  • How the SEC’s proposed regulation differs from EU SFDR/MiFID II frameworks
  • Is there a catch-22 tied to SEC's GHG Scope 3 emissions requirement
