Q&A with Mercer: ‘Young people’s sustainable values are an inspiration’

Sarika Goel discusses greenwashing, the need for better stewardship and leaving the planet in a better state than we found it

Sarika Goel joined Mercer in 2010 to lead the firm’s coverage of sustainable investment strategies within listed equities. In August this year, she was appointed global head of sustainable investment research. ESG Clarity caught up with Goel to find out how her new role has been going so far and what she expects from the ESG space.

This newly created role expands Mercer’s focus on sustainability in manager research, where I’m providing direction and leadership for sustainable investment research across asset classes. This includes integration, research on new/emerging sustainable investment themes and strategic research focused on bringing these ideas into client portfolios.
