In Emerging Markets, Does It Pay to Worry About ESG Factors?

T. Rowe Price Insights on International Equity

In Emerging Markets, Does It Pay to Worry About ESG Factors? As a value investor, we are very much in the affirmative camp.


■ Emerging markets (EM) have made great progress in relation to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations in recent years, with many companies today displaying ESG standards in line with global best practices.

■ Yet there remains a general perception among investors that EM continue to suffer from an “ESG shortfall.”

■ This presents opportunities for active investors to find mispriced companies where strong or improving ESG standards are underappreciated, thereby offering long‑term price improvement potential.
