ESG Investing Is Here To Stay
ESG stands for environmental, social, and governance. These are non-financial factors used to measure a company's sustainability. Environmental factors focus on how green a company is, meaning their carbon emissions, pollution, water use, renewable energy use, and other environmentally-friendly practices.
While investing trends come and go, the truth is, the need for sustainable business practices is here for good. As Anne Simpson, Global Head of Sustainability at Franklin Templeton said, “Investors have been loud and long on the topic of making sure we get climate risk information put forward into the market.”
Investors should look to ESGs as they may lower your investment risk, and may lead to high returns. The Morgan Stanley Institute for Sustainable conducted a study comparing the performance of sustainable mutual and exchange funds to traditional funds, from 2004-2018. They found that sustainable funds consistently showed a lower downside risk than traditional funds.
