What is sustainable or ESG Investing?

In recent years, investors in the financial industry have introduced a new concept: Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) – supplementing traditional financial concepts.

  • Environmental (E) - How companies reduce environmental impacts of waste, water use and pollution
  • Social (S) - How companies build community engagement with their labour practices – and more
  • Governance (G) - How companies are governed, e.g. appropriate regulatory tools in place, diversity of their board, etc.

Why does it matter?

ESG changes are rapidly reshaping how people live and invest. ESG factors have entered the mainstream and have the potential to drive investment outperformance.
