ESGforInvestors has recently developed its Pollution-Focused Engagement Maximiser. The tool is the first of its kind and aims to minimise the cost of pollution by looking at the amount by which lowering pollution would boost a firm’s equity valuation and reduce debt costs.

The Pollution-Focused Engagement Maximiser utilises the Harvard Business School (HBS) dataset on environmental externalities, which covers the financial cost pollution has on society from nearly 2,600 firms.

The tool attributes potential financial gains to contributions towards the UN Sustainable Goals (SDGs).
