ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Business Governance and is a tool the industry uses to measure various companies’ policies regarding its treatment of people and the environment.

Corporations are then scored for their compliance in meeting these criteria.
This gives those of us who want to be socially and environmentally responsible something to look at when choosing how to invest.
WTF is wrong with that?
