1. ESG investing versus sustainable investing
Due to a lack of standardisation in terminology, there is general confusion in ESG investing vs sustainable investing, and which is the best strategy for investors to pursue.
ESG investing considerations allow market participants to consider ways in which environmental, social, and governance (ESG) opportunities and factors have an impact on a company’s performance. The level of financial performance is maintained while applying sustainability principles. The emphasis is on long-term value by using ESG factors to identify opportunities and mitigate risks.
Sustainable investing, also known as socially responsible investing (SRI), produces adequate or sub-market financial returns, as a result of placing a premium on positive social change. Financial returns are more of a secondary consideration, while the investors’ moral values take more of a precedence.
