ESG what are they and what they measure

ESG stands for environmental, social and governance.

It is a framework for analyzing companies and assessing how well they compare to their peers in terms of performance against these metrics.

Environmental measures the general aspect of environmental behavior related to water usage and waste production. It also includes how efficient they are managing their resources and looking after the environment around them.

Social stands for how well they treat their clients, employees and how diverse their aspects of management/workforce are.

Governance examines how well-run the company is and the governing structure within the company in terms of share class structure.

Altogether, it is another way of assessing the company without merely looking at the balance sheet. It is able to assess how they impact the broader society at large.
