ESG is a huge trend in the financial world. The acronym stands for Environmental (E), Social (S), and Governance (G). It’s a set of standards for a company’s socially conscious behaviour.

Instead ESG measures companies on the basis of it’s social consciousness. The social criteria include the company’s policies that might impact the climate and pollution (E), it’s relationship with employees and the local community (S), and senior management pay and shareholder rights (G).

It’s a set of standards that encourages companies to act responsibly in pursuit of profits.

ESG investment funds have exploded all around the world. In 2019 ESG funds were estimated to hold over US$ 17 tr in assets. Industry estimates forecast ESG assets to exceed US$ 50 tr in 2025.
