Ep. 324 The Profiteers and Their Hidden Social and Environmental Costs

Since I started exploring the fascinating world of sustainability and ESG, I have taken courses and read many books. Currently, I am reading The Profiteers: How Business PRIVAITIZES Privatizes Profits and Socializes Costs by Christopher Marquis.

Business leaders and corporations profess their dedication to sustainability and ESG metrics, but the question is: do they do it?

Christopher Marquis is the Sinyi Professor of Chinese Management at the University of Cambridge in the UK.

In this episode, we highlight interesting points from his book:

  • Corporate Gaslighting
  • ESG is a toxic term
  • Externalities
  • The Overuse of The Commons

I highly recommend his book.
