ESG Opportunities Workshop
On August 15, 2011, CalPERS Investment Committee held a workshop to examine how best to integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into the Pension Fund's investment process in order to enhance risk management. Environmental, social and governance issues - known as ESG - can affect the financial performance and long-term value of companies and investments. For the past year, the CalPERS Investment Office has been developing a comprehensive plan to implement ESG into investment decision-making across all asset classes. During the workshop, CalPERS Investment Office gained Board input on priorities and the development of an ESG integration plan.
