Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Investing

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Investing

ESG investing is a form of sustainable investing that considers environmental, social and governance factors to judge an investment’s financial returns and its overall impact. Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data was created to help socially responsible investors make better decisions. Investors use ESG data to find companies that are trying to reduce their negative effects on society and/or give back to society.

When it comes to financial returns, investments with high ESG scores tend to do better, while investments with low ESG scores may hurt returns. Even though there is a layer of social consciousness, the main goal of ESG valuation is how well a company does financially.

This is my 15th year of growing my MOustache (aka “MO) with MOvember. I grow my MO to honor my father-in-law, who passed away from prostate cancer + to raise awareness and funds + to literally and figuratively change the face of men’s health. Movember is a fun approach to serious issues (testicular cancer for younger men + prostate cancer for older men + mental health for all of us), so I hope when you see our MOs that you will check yourself + remember to schedule your annual physicals + reach out if you need a friend.   #movember #menshealth #SouthBayMoBros
