Great Transition Initiative
The UN Global Compact was launched in 2000 by former Secretary-General Kofi Annan to promote corporate social responsibility. The Compact now engages over 8,000 corporate participants from more than 150 countries, along with 4,000 not-for-profit collaborating organizations. Allen White, Senior Fellow at Tellus Institute, talks with the Compact’s recently retired Founding Executive Director, Georg Kell, about the genesis and evolution of the Compact, and the prospects for driving corporations beyond incremental change.
Georg Kell introduces Arabesque Partners, the world's first ESG-based asset quant fund to use sophisticated quantitative measures to assess the degree to which companies invest in ESG issues. Watch his JUST CAPITAL conversation with Deepak Chopra now on NEWSWIRE.FM.
