What do you mean?

Agree with EY1…it depends on how the ratings are calculated. If you do best in class then maybe shell is great but should it be included in the esg index probably not

Mostly misleading. A necessary evil though.

Why are they misleading?

Mostly marketing for fund managers.

For actual actionable information I look to each individual category or even deeper. I can assure you investors care so companies care.

Which one - there are so many? E - S - G can be very different animals as they look at such different risk buckets.

Hi fishies,

I need some guidance for my freelance rate living in LA as a product designer.
They are very thoughtful of me and knew that this is my first time being freelance as a product designer. I was given some time to come up with the number for my hourly rate.
They also mentioned, "Remember to add that insurance fee, living cost stuff, etc into your consideration and Don't ask lower than $50". Is there any formula that can help - like 1.5x standard annual salary? Thanks

I am currently a year from finishing my PhD and was looking at VC's as a career path because I like to do meta-analysis of different climate change techs. I networked with VCs and one of them was receptive but didn't have the budget currently for a full time hire. They said they'd be interested in working with me to do a research paper over the coming semester, and was wondering if I could leverage this into a full time offer?

Is a white paper with a VC going to be attractive on my CV?

Is my best bet to tackle credentials, learning, or networking? Any advise is greatly appreciated. Also, I’m open to networking on LinkedIn, dm to connect!
