ESG

"Environmental, social and governance  considerations are moving out of a specialised niche and into the mainstream. Financiers and chief executives are realising that it can sometimes be more costly to ignore ESG issues." Gillian Tett, Financial Times (June 18, 2019)

ESG

According to the London Stock Exchange, ESG-related information has moved from a peripheral to a core part of investment analysis. Indeed, from October 2019, UK pension fund trustees will be required to consider the impact of ESG on their investment decision making or justify why their choices do not hurt investment returns.

ESG investing is estimated at $23tn and growing. Seventy-five per cent of investors say they want to get involved (FT Moral Money), with asset managers investing in specialists and tools in order to analyse evidence of sustainability, integrity and good governance more accurately.

GoodCorporation is working with clients to help them analyse and understand their market position in relation to ESG funding. We deploy our assessment methodology to review businesses against the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Using our knowledge of fund management and ESG analysis we are able to advise companies as to the processes they should have in place to manage ESG matters and what else is needed to produce verifiable evidence of ESG performance. Such evidence should be made publicly available so the ESG analysts can support investment decisions and inclusion in an investor's sustainable investment portfolio.

78% of respondents state that “ESG is either playing a growing role or becoming integral to what they do as an organisation."
