Many mistake sustainable investing to be simply investing for the good of the environment; however, it is more than that. Sustainable investing is an investment approach that also focuses on sector-leading companies in two other key areas – social and governance – alongside the environment, to improve long-term returns. Together, these three areas are known as “ESG” – Environmental, Social and Governance.
Issues related to climate change, efficient use of resources, pollution and more.
How a company interacts with its suppliers, employees and customers.
Accessing how well a company is run.
With growing consciousness around issues like climate change and social inequality, investors are increasingly trying to see how they can impact the people and the planet positively through their investments. This has contributed to growing demand for sustainable investments.
