Global ESG assets may surpass $41 trillion by 2022 and $50 trillion by 2025, one-third of the projected total assets under management globally, according to a new report by Bloomberg Intelligence (BI), and large investors have publicly declared that ESG criteria will guide their investment decisions. At the same time, corporations recognize the need to manage ESG risks and opportunities. However, academic researchers in this area often encounter methodological issues that range from the challenges associated with measuring intangible factors to the lack of consistency and standardization in current corporate ESG disclosure.

The 3rd edition of the conference series on Corporate Social Responsibility organized by UMass Boston and EM Normandie Business School will be held in Boston on October 10 and 11.

This conference is an annual opportunity for researchers to explore, test out new ideas, and network with diverse peers seeking to advance our understanding of ESG. This year's emphasis is to attract research on the MEASUREMENT and IMPACT of ESG as a business strategy driver.

The Review of Financial Economics will dedicate a Special Issue to this conference.
