Environmental, Social, and Governance—three words that are beginning to play a significant role in investment decisions. ESG is a class of investing known as sustainable investing. Aside from financial metrics, investors take into account non-financial performance indicators which focus on Environmental, Social, and Governance risks. Environmental risks include the potential negative impact that business activities may have on natural ecosystems. Social risks refer to the impact companies can have on society, including health, human rights, and labor-management relations. Governance risks focus on the manner in which companies are run.
