We are extremely happy to announce that Chinese rights for SUSTAINABLE INVESTING – BEATING THE MARKET WITH ESG by Tiina Landau and Hanna Silvola have now been sold to Cheers publishing house in China.
The publisher was really happy about the deal:
ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) investment is one of the megatrends at present. This book provides a comprehensive analysis framework and tools for ESG investment, as well as the latest progress and trend. Practical cases in the book can also provide a good reference for the research and practice of ESG investment. It provides complete and systematic guidance for institutional and individual investors to fully understand ESG investment and practice strategic skills.
-Dong Huan, editor, Cheers Publishing, China
About the book: Sustainability is taking a center stage in government policies around the world, as well as company and investor agendas. Therefore, for both sustainability and practical reasons, the future of investing lies in taking Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) aspects into consideration – and that doesn’t mean compromising one’s returns, but adapting to the new situation.
The updated edition for SUSTAINABLE INVESTING – BEATING THE MARKET WITH ESG was published in the US this year by Palgrave Macmillan.
Tiina Landau: “The cooperation with Cheers comes at a great time as we see China taking sustainability forward by aiming at carbon neutrality by 2060 and also introducing its Green Bond Endorsed Project Catalogue which sets standards for sustainable finance. I am very excited that we will be able to bring learnings from ourselves and leading sustainable investors to support also Chinese investors and companies alike in making the green transition a reality.”
Hanna Silvola adds: “China’s green transition is vital to both the global economic system and our planet. Our book presents ways on how to combine sustainable investing and profit-making.”
SUSTAINABLE INVESTING – BEATING THE MARKET WITH ESG
by Tiina Landau and Hanna Silvola
This book reviews the latest methods of sustainable investing and financial profit-making and describes how ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) analysis can identify future business opportunities and manage risk to achieve abnormal returns. Megatrends such as climate change, sustainable development and digitalization increase uncertainty and information asymmetry and have an impact on the future returns on investments. From a profit perspective, it is largely about how ESG factors affect the long-term value added by companies and the valuation of companies in the financial markets. Although sustainability provides an opportunity for abnormal returns, this phenomenon must be considered in a critical light. The book describes the risks and limitations associated with the accountability and availability of ESG data and tools.
This book provides both academic findings and practical models for assessing the sustainability of investees and introduces practical tools and methods to make ESG analysis practice. It focuses on the ESG analysis of equity investments and fund investments in institutional investment organizations and provides a handbook for all investment analysts who are involved with investment decisions. Readers will benefit from understanding the methods, opportunities and challenges that professionals use in their ESG analysis with cases, interviews and practical tools for both institutional and private investors.
“Filled with useful case studies on companies and investors, the book discusses relevant recent trends, initiatives and approaches. The reader comes away with useful possibilities to consider, but also a sense of how much more there is to do and an understanding of why there are so many divergent approaches by investors being taken today.” – Cary Krosinksy for Responsible Investor
“Sustainable Investing offers practical advice to market participants, with a variety of examples from investors and corporates who have dealt with the challenge of integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) aspects into their operations. The authors anchor these case studies in emerging research from academic finance, while providing readers with a critical lens to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of what may sometimes appear to be contradictory conclusions. Sustainable Investing is an excellent resource for international investors, advisors, and corporates.”
– Annie Bersagel, Portfolio Manager – ESG, Folketrygdfondet, Government Pension Fund Norway
“A must-read to understand the tectonic shift of sustainable finance and how to be a part of it– through detailed case-studies and first-hand practitioners’ input, this book takes on the challenge of making sustainable investments clear and actionable.”
– Carole Crozat, CFA, Head of Thematic Research for Sustainable Investments, BlackRock
“Most of what is described as sustainability investing today is very far from the mark. If we are to build a truly regenerative economy, across all dimensions of value creation, we must transform not just financial markets but economics itself. This timely book by Hanna Silvola and Tiina Landau is a welcome guide to an increasingly complex landscape of risk and opportunity.”
– John Elkington, Author of Green Swans: The Coming Boom in Regenerative Capitalism
“Pension investors want to make sure that their pension funds are able to provide their participants with a good pension. At the same time, they also want to contribute to a sustainable world with good quality of life, for current and future generations. Sustainable Investing provides a comprehensive overview with many practical cases that inspire to take action.”
– Els Knoope, Senior Portfolio Manager, APG Asset Management
“This book provides excellent advice for beginners in sustainable investing and also for those more advanced. The concrete examples are helpful and not easy to come by yet in the public space. Recommended reading for investors and the interested public alike.”
– Eila Kreivi, Director, Head of Capital Markets, European Investment Bank
