What is environmental, social and governance (ESG)?
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) is a framework used to assess an organisation’s business practices and performance on various sustainability and ethical issues. It also provides a way to measure business risks and opportunities in those areas.
Why does ESG investing matter, and how does it work?
In many cases, customer behaviour has changed to focus on more sustainable practices. People increasingly look to recycle, minimise waste and make greener choices on products and to reward businesses that act responsibly. In ESG investing, those goals also influence decisions on investment choices.
Often, both individual and institutional investors who consider ESG issues want to use their money to support companies that align with their own values on environmental sustainability and social responsibility. In addition, such companies could have better long-term financial performance than other organisations because of lower costs, reduced business risks and new marketing opportunities, potentially leading them to outperform in the stock market. ESG investing has seen strong growth as a result.
