Why ESG investing is important?

“Investors want business leaders to focus on ESG, or environmental, social and governance metrics. That means progress on ESG isn’t just a nice-to-have anymore. It’s something shareholders will demand, because they believe it’s going to drive everything else they care about. Growth, market share, profitability.”
