What is ESG?

ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) is the incorporation of beyond-financial considerations (data) into risk and opportunity analysis. Some call ESG initiatives sustainability, responsible investing, social impact, diversity, or stakeholder capitalism.

ESG is about exploring a responsible journey to sustainable economic competitiveness. ESG is important for corporate strategies, risk management, and capital investments.
