Dec. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Erika Karp, Founder and CEO of Cornerstone Capital, discusses managing environmental issues in investing and making finance greener. She speaks on Bloomberg Television's “The Pulse.” (Source: Bloomberg)

Have this initial idea of having the community embrace this?

When you are the director of research you start to figure out how you can go down different and interesting avenues of inquiry and how do you get than to enhance what they are using.

I've came up with a systematic analysis of environmental and social factors.

In particular, corporate performance.

It is essential and i went further and further down that area of inquiry.

I came to cornerstone.

Maybe it is more on the governance part.

It is all incorporated and it is heavily incorporated.

If you get the governance right and the consciousness of these huge global macroeconomic imperatives, you will work towards progress in the environmental and social realms.

You must start with the government in the culture, frankly.

What surprised you the most when you look at the companies and countries.

We are looking at the sector or this industry?

What is most disconcerting is the lack of standards for disclosure.

There is not clarity on what companies could and should talk about and what language they should speak of it in.

There's a lack of a standard for disclosure and that conclude that concerns me.

It does not surprise me.

I think we can make progress on this.

This would have to be through shareholder activity or regulation.

And has to be through a number of things.

Complex problems.

Finally change and infrastructure.

Income inequality.

Conflux problems cannot be solved sequentially and we need multiple initiatives.

We need shareholder activism.

There is a lot of things that we need to do.

Erika is the founder and ceo of cornerstone.

What we have for you, the first word is next on the radio.

For you, is the second hour of the polls.

What do we have for you?

We'll talk with the future of the few years in the aviation industry.

We'll find out the a man who knows a lot about this.

He'll talk to us.

Join the conversation.

We would be delighted to have you along.

Francine can be found.

We'll take a short break.

We'll see you shortly.
