This talk will give an overview of the construction of ESG ratings and show that there is much disagreement between different ESG rating providers. As measurement is one of the most important drivers of the disagreement between raters, Florian Berg - Research scientist at the MIT Sloan School of Management - will show how measurement errors affect ESG portfolio construction and asset pricing.  The talk will end with an analysis of how ratings actually matter economically.

EDHEC Discussants are Abraham Lioui, professor and head of faculty - Data Science, Economics & Finance and Emmanuel Jurczenko, director of graduate finance programmes.
