2021 ESG INVESTING CHALLENGE
Each year, we host the ESG Investing Challenge in conjunction with internationally leading business schools. During the Challenge, students worked with the firm’s professionals who served as student mentors and judges. For this year’s theme, we chose net-zero investing. Students were encouraged to identify an investment that met a dual objective: positive impact and financial performance. The Path to Net-Zero Emissions
We were thrilled with the many submissions we received. Of the 21 teams that provided an investment pitch for their company of choice, six were chosen to progress to the finals, where they presented their investment pitch to the judges. Ultimately, we selected two winning teams, with the choices reflecting our belief in the need to focus both on decarbonizing carbon-intensive industries and investing in climate solutions. The first team presented an auto parts
manufacturer with a focus on sustainable mobility products, and the second team presented a farming and industrial solutions company, highlighting its position as a climate leader within a traditionally high-emitting industry as an opportunity to maximize environmental impact. We look forward to continuing to meet students’ growing interest in ESG Investing and to expanding our business school collaborations in the years to come.
