On April 27, M&T Bank’s Director of Environmental, Social and Governance Erin Komorowski hosted a webinar, where Wilmington Trust’s Head of Sustainable Investing Steve Norcini and President and CEO of Calvert Research and Management John Streur discussed the following questions and many more:

  • How do active and passive investing strategies differ—for traditional and sustainable approaches—as far as the benefits, the challenges, and the investor experience?
  • How do investment teams incorporate environmental, social and governance data into portfolios?
  • Will the Russia–Ukraine war impact the transition away from fossil fuels—and what’s the active vs. passive distinction when it comes to exiting Russian holdings?

Please read the important disclosures at the end of this video.


Investing involves risks, and you may incur a profit or a loss.

There is no guarantee that integrating environmental, social, or governance (ESG) analysis will provide improved risk-adjusted returns over any specific time period.

The evaluation of ESG factors will affect the strategy’s exposure to certain issuers, industries, sectors, regions, and countries and may impact the relative financial performance of the strategy depending on whether such investments are in or out of favor.
