— July 31, 2017
Excerpt from The CPA Journal -- "'There’s a very high correlation between a strong ESG performance and strong operational performance, strong stock performance and lower cost of capital,' Whelan claimed, citing a study by the University of Oxford and Arabesque. Examining that phenomenon at the Center for Sustainable Business, she has found that sustainability can drive innovation, risk reduction, operational efficiency, and employee recruitment and engagement. She noted that while much of this is financially intangible, its effects can be felt on the company’s bottom line."
