Measuring the impact of ESG scores on CoE and Firm 'performance" , has been released with the international publishing house Palgrave Macmillan, is a book edited by Carlo Bellavite Pellegrini, Massimo Catizone and Laura Pellegrini, aimed at offering an understanding of important future trends, such as sustainability and ESG factors. The book, aimed at scholars and practitioners , is divided into two parts: the first part offers theoretical insights into the various aspects related to sustainability, while the second part collects numerous empirical contributions at sector and geographical area level, the result of studies conducted in recent years by Professor Carlo Bellavite Pellegrini and by the research group of the Center for Applied Economics Studies (CSEA) of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart. The authors' objective is to offer, with an international scope, tools capable of demonstrating the significant impact of the adoption by companies of a sustainable business . Understanding issues such as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors allows for an in-depth assessment of the risks and opportunities that a company faces in the medium to long term. Particular attention is therefore dedicated to sustainable strategies, and to how these affect both debt and capital, with important repercussions on the allocation of assets , stock picking, risk management, liquidity, performance and the value of the company itself.
“It is an ambitious book, a book created with the aim of bringing the academic and professional world closer to the new challenges for businesses, unique for the different and numerous perspectives offered to the reader. The project conceived together with Laura and Massimo, and carried out together with the various co-authors, many of them young, therefore offers important tools to understand and look towards a new reality in which companies and attention to their stakeholders can really create value that lasts over time."
