Investors and employees are looking for businesses that are trying to mitigate their impact on the environment, and that cares about their employees, fair compensation, and gender equality.
Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria are a set of standards for a company’s operations that socially conscious investors use to screen potential investments. Environmental criteria consider how a business performs as a steward of nature. Social criteria examine how it manages relationships with employees, suppliers, customers, and the communities where it operates. Governance deals with a company’s leadership, internal controls, and shareholder rights. These factors are becoming increasingly important and are driving a radical change in the investment market.
