It involves an investment approach that integrates environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into financial analysis and decision-making: i.e., it is premised on the belief that the concept of “value” in the investment system must extend beyond financial returns, to encompass the impacts of a company’s operations on the environment within which it operates and the people who work for it and who are affected by it.
