ESG Integration & Financial Analysis


ESG Integration & Financial Analysis Course Overview

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors are increasingly becoming important considerations in many firms’ capital allocation decisions. ESG integration is a strategy that can be employed to conduct a more robust financial analysis and to get a more complete picture of a company’s valuation and its overall risk profile. This ESG Integration & Financial Analysis course examines how ESG initiatives and performance can influence a company’s income statement, cash flow statement, and balance sheet.

After covering the most important qualitative and quantitative factors that may impact a company’s financials, we dive into a case study where we interpret ESG information from an example company’s sustainability report, then model these various scenarios in Excel. We also work through several optional, advanced modeling techniques to support cleaner data visualization, including the use of Macabacus shortcuts.

  • Define ESG integration.
