ESG Essentials

ESG and responsible investment

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors have become a growing focus among various sectors in recent years and a number of research reports have revealed the impact of ESG factors on companies’ long-term performance.

Companies that conduct their business in a responsible and sustainable way are more likely to deliver value for investors and positive impacts on the world in the long term.

What is ESG?

Financial fundamentals have always been given priority in traditional investment process. However, due to the rising concern for corporate social responsibility (CSR), some investment strategies are integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into analysis with an aim to arrive at the most favorable investment decisions. This approach can help investors achieve financial return without taking excessive risk, and it also contributes to a more sustainable future. These investment strategies are called responsible investments.
