A New Way of Incorporating ESG Factors into Business Valuation
In 2014, the CFA Institute in the US began discussing the incorporation of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) factors into investment decision-making and business valuation. However, the measurement involved in each rating varies greatly, thus confusing users. Given this, TEJ released the “TESG Rating Index (TESG Rating) ” on March 31, 2022, a tool for reference in investment and credit. What’s more, we use the TESG Rating to explore its correlation with commonly-used valuation multiples, such as the price-to-book (P/B) ratio and price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio.
