Keeping you in-the-know on environmental, social and governance developments

I announced earlier that the 2022 revision/update of my 2018 book Killing Sustainability was completed. The update covered a lot of ground – increasing the number of pages by 50% over the original. Even so, it was hard to stop writing because meaningful and credible ESG developments and news kept coming.

Here is an overview of a few of the topics explored in the book and some recent related news items.

Other topics covered include:

  • Chief Sustainability Officers (CSOs) – qualifications, organizational placement, and when they hurt more than help
  • How ESG can get the “traditional risk management” secret handshake and be let into the club
  • Making ESG reports effective by eliminating jargon and being honest
  • Cost of capital – shareholder reward or ESG punishment?
  • Why and how to focus on ESG-based revenue (it’s far more powerful than “sprinkling ESG fairy dust on stock”)

The revised book is currently available only as an exclusive benefit for members – downloadable in the Guidebooks section. The original version continues to be available for purchase from Amazon.
