Climate change, growing inequality, and now, the coronavirus pandemic have accelerated a movement by investors to understand sustainable capitalism. Part of the equation is being able to measure companies’ impacts on people and the planet. Join Assoc. Prof. Adair Morse in conversation with Sir Ronald Cohen, an international philanthropist, venture capitalist, and social innovator who has been described as the “father of social investment.” Cohen is the chairman of the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment and the new Impact-Weighted Accounts Initiative, which aims to create transparent accounting statements that capture social and environmental impacts. Morse is the Soloman P. Lee Chair in Business Ethics and faculty director for the Sustainable & Impact Finance Initiative at Berkeley Haas.
