Join us for a conversation with Prof. Witold Henisz, Vice Dean and Faculty Director of the Wharton Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Initiative. 

The mission of Wharton’s ESG Initiative is, consistent with the vision of Joseph Wharton, to harness the power of business to “solve the social problems incident to our civilization.” We will do this by conducting academically rigorous but practically relevant research that investigates the intersection of ESG factors and business and by further advancing our best-in-class education of current and future practitioners, enabling them to serve a world undergoing tremendous change. Launched on July 1, 2022, the ESG Initiative unites and builds upon several of Wharton’s existing research centers, including the Business, Climate, and Environment and Political Risk Labs of the Wharton Risk Center, the Wharton Social Impact Initiative, the ESG Analytics Lab, and the Zicklin Center for Business Ethics.

Informed by faculty-led research, world-class alumni and other supporters, the initiative plays an integral role in developing knowledge, curriculum, and co-curricular activities to distinguish Wharton as an intellectual leader on this global topic that is shaping the current and future practice of ESG integration.

The Chatham House Rule will apply to this event. No recordings will be made.
