WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF ESG
Shifting perspectives and priorities have encouraged businesses to review their investment ethics. A newer corporate performance metric – Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) – considers the environmental, social and governance factors alongside financial factors in investment decision-making. The upward ESG investment trend is an opportunity to strengthen the economy in a clean, inclusive and impactful way. By 2030, ESG funds are estimated to reach $30 trillion. In addition, nearly half of all professionally managed assets will be ESG-related by 2024.
Promising ESG sub-sectors include renewable energy, electric vehicles and sustainable materials. In 2021, China invested $266 million in those sectors, while the United States invested $114 million.
