Lecturer in Sustainability
Dr. Cort works at the intersection of corporate responsibility and sustainable finance. My objective is to reduce the barriers to moving capital (either corporate or investor) to more sustainable investments. In this space, Dr. Cort is working on: 1) Metrics and standards for measuring the environmental impacts of fixed income investment products such as green bonds; 2) Metrics and the underlying data for environmental, social and governance (ESG) that demonstrably drive corporate growth and improvement in equity value; and 3) Metrics for underwriting more sustainable insurance products–particularly around
the means to measure effective climate adaptation.
