In the latest episode of the ESG Out Loud podcast, ESG Clarity global editor Natasha Turner is joined by Dan Kemp, CIO for EMEA at Morningstar Investment Management and ESG Clarity EU Committee member, and Helen Goulden CEO of The Young Foundation, to debate these challenges and discuss a Scope framework for social factors similar to that for environmental disclosures, as set out in a recent paper by The Young Foundation, The Quest for the ā€˜Sā€™ in ESG.
