The Unsung Aspects of ESG
Over the last couple of years, ESG integrated investing has been covered fairly extensively across the investment and financial services industries. However, much of this coverage and marketing has focused on environmental matters – carbon footprint this; fossil fuels that. But why, you might ask, do some of these ESG integrated funds invest in companies that have very questionable track records in terms of their environmental credentials? The key lies in the S and G, or Social and Governance factors, of a company that qualifies for an ESG integrated fund. In this webinar we will look at how important these are in terms of sustainable investing, and how investors can help make a difference.
