Once a niche approach thought to come at the expense of returns, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategies have proven that they can be market-beating.
If you’re someone who wants to make a positive difference, you might be interested to know how you, your money and the things you care about could all benefit from sustainable investing.
The three pillars of ESG cover a wide range of issues:
- Environmental: this factor examines the extent to which a company is taking a ‘green’ approach.
- Social: this factor examines how the company manages its relationships with people including employees, suppliers, customers and local communities.
- Governance: this factor examines a company's business practices. Criteria can include whether it uses open and transparent accounting practices or whether shareholders can vote on important decisions.
