Good Governance. Greater Returns.
Why corporate governance is the key to an ESG-friendly portfolio.
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues are taking a larger place in investor mindsets of late. As the Green Revolution takes hold, corporations’ roles in protecting our planet has driven their environmental practices to the forefront. At the same time, global companies’ treatment of workers in factories and warehouses has ignited debates about corporate social responsibility. Given these, one can be forgiven for believing that the third letter in the ESG framework – governance – should take a backseat to environmental and social issues.
