Doug Cogan

Doug Cogan is Aperio’s ESG/SRI Strategist. He has devoted his 35-year career to serving investors who wish to integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in their investment decisions. He has advised pension plans, foundations and endowments, investment consultants, and high-net-worth investors on adoption of ESG, low-carbon, and impact investment strategies. Doug began his career with the Investor Responsibility Research Center in 1982 and most recently was the US Asset Owner Account Representative for MSCI ESG Research. He is the author of several books and dozens of major reports. His 1992 book, The Greenhouse Gambit, was one of the first to examine how climate change would influence future business and investment priorities. He also previously ran an ESG consulting practice that specialized in “investing beyond carbon”—ways that investors can engage companies and allocate their portfolios to speed the transition to a low-carbon economy. Doug loves the great outdoors, photography, travel, cooking, and creating music playlists on Spotify.
