Prioritizing ESG Investments with Dr. Pooja Khosla (Ep. 71)



Everything from the environment to resources, and even sustainability, has been impacted by current events, which in turn bring market volatility.

How should we react to this? Should we be scared? Should the ESG markets be worried?

In this episode, Kimberly Griego-Kiel talks with Entelligent’s executive vice president for client & product development, Dr. Pooja Khosla. Dr. Khosla discusses some of the recent anti-ESG sentiments she has been hearing, along with things we can do to prioritize ESG investing today. 

Dr. Khosla and Kim discuss:

  • Why ESG has underperformed over the last six months
  • How some industrialized countries like the US are producing more carbon than countries with a larger population
  • Reasons environmental-focused investors need to pay more attention to carbon production
  • How operating in scarcity of resources has made emerging markets more resourceful and environmentally friendly
  • And more!
