Description

We will host a webinar to discuss our recent report titled "Environmental Issues and Stock Returns." Our report quantifies the impact environmental issues have on company stock prices. We examined the impact of a recent environmental incident on stock prices using new data sources.

Using data from both old and new sources, we explore and quantify the impact environmental factors have on stock prices using several statistical techniques. The webinar is structured into two parts. In the first, we describe three standard market models and test the hypothesis that environmental factors do, in fact, impact equity prices.

In the second part of the webinar, we examine the impact of a recent environmental incident on stock prices using new data sources and with the assistance of the equity market model specified in phase one.

We created three portfolios based on a ranking of environmental impact forecasts and preparations, as outlined below. The first portfolio consisted of firms with an environmental impact forecast who were well prepared for an environmental incident. The second portfolio consisted of firms with an environmental impact forecast who were marginally prepared for an environmental incident. The final portfolio consisted of firms without an environmental impact forecast who were not prepared for an environmental incident.

Our analysis strongly suggests that investors and publicly traded companies must recognize the impact environmental incidents and issues have on a given firm's ability to use company assets and therefore generate revenue and profits.
