If you’re looking to invest for your future but are concerned that the assets you choose may compromise your personal values, ESG investing might be right for you.
The term “ESG” stands for the words Environmental, Social and Governance. In ESG investing, these three key factors are always considered alongside any potential financial returns to be gained.
ESG investing focuses on using your money as a force for good, while still enjoying a substantial return. In short, it involves investing in firms that you feel are doing right by the world and those who live in it. Examples of ESG investments might be sustainable transport companies or renewable energy enterprises.
While once a niche corner of investing, the ESG market is now a popularly sought-after commodity, mirroring the world’s renewed interest in sustainability. This means that while once, those making more ethical investments would have to accept lower earning potential, this is no longer the case.
