Environmental, social and governance (ESG) refers to the three central factors in measuring the sustainability and ethical impact of an investment in a company or business. This will help investors and fund managers to determine the future financial performance of companies (return and risk).
Ethical Investing aims to exclude profiting from activities that are considered harmful to society and the environment and to invest in organisations, companies and projects that are committed to operating in a way that is sustainable for the future.
Socially responsible investing, or social investment is any investment strategy which seeks to consider both financial return and social/environmental good to bring about social change regarded as positive to people and/or the planet.
Eco-investing is a form of socially responsible investing where investments are made in companies that support or provide environmentally friendly products and practices.
