Isaac Otchere is a Professor of Finance. In recent times many firms with unsustainable business practices are being excluded from the investment portfolios of environmentally and ethically focused public investors. While this is meant to be a punishment for their environmental sins, little is known about the effectiveness of this strategy in actually changing corporate behaviours because other investors could fill this void. Through his project, The Price of Environmental Sin, Isaac is examining this effectiveness and researching if it does indeed force the excluded firms to become more environmentally sustainable.
