Abstract: This study examines the impact of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reputational risk on a sample of listed firms’ market longevity. Using a novel panel dataset consisting of US firms over the period 2007–2019, we perform dynamic empirical analysis to quantify the underlying relationships between firms’ ESG reputational risk and market longevity. We argue that ESG reputational risk has a negative impact on firm growth opportunities, mitigating thus market longevity. The empirical findings survive several robustness checks, providing useful managerial implications for stakeholders and market participants..
