ESG: Your Money, a Better World in 2024

Understanding ESG And Its Importance

Have you ever felt a nagging unease when investing? A sense that while your money grows, the world around you might be suffering?

You’re not alone. Many of us are looking for ways to align our financial goals with a positive impact. That’s where ESG comes in. According to the 2021 Porter Novelli Purpose Premium Index (PPI), “73% of consumers say that to win their support, companies must show how they are supporting communities and the environment.”

In fact, in Edelman’s special report “Trust in the Workplace” found that seven out of 10 employees wanted their job to bring societal impact, calling it a strong expectation or deal breaker when considering a job. 

But why does it matter to you? While you possess the ability to contribute to the answer, customers are selecting businesses that share their values more and more. Workers are looking for environments that put social justice and sustainability first. Investing capital is flooding ESG-focused funds too!

  • Make informed choices: From the products you buy to the companies you invest in, ESG knowledge gives you the power to support businesses creating a positive impact.
  • Hold companies accountable: By understanding the metrics, you can ask questions and demand better practices from the businesses you interact with.
  • Become an advocate for change: Spreading awareness about Environment, Social and Governance  in your own circle of influence can create a ripple effect.

Environment, Social and Governance is a framework for considering a company’s impact beyond just its bottom line. Imagine investing in companies that are:

  • Protecting our planet: Reducing pollution, fighting climate change, and transitioning to renewable energy.
  • Investing in their people: Ensuring fair wages, diversity in the workplace, and strong safety standards.
  • Operating with integrity: Upholding ethical practices, transparent reporting, and responsible leadership.

By choosing ESG-focused investments, you’re not just putting your money to work, you’re putting your values to work. You’re supporting companies that are creating a better future for everyone.

As the global community becomes more aware of environmental and social issues, Environment, Social and Governance criteria are increasingly influencing investment decisions and corporate strategies. According to a 2022 report by the Global Sustainable Investment Alliance, sustainable investments now account for over a third of global assets under management.

This reflects a growing demand for ethical and sustainable business practices which further shows the value placed to work and also the importance of ESG with the growing significance.
