What is it?

Sustainable investing goes by many names, including ethical investing, socially responsible investing, green investing, impact investing and ESG investing. Although individual strategies will vary, it is generally characterized by a set of principles that govern how investments are selected using environmental, social and governance criteria. Sustainable investing seeks to provide financial returns with a positive impact on society.
