Sustainable investing could make a positive impact on global problems and provide you with above average market returns.
How to Identify the right Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)
Some investors are reluctant to put their money into sustainable investments. Their reason is that these investments could earn suboptimal returns. They could argue that, saving the world should be the job of global leaders and international non-profit organisations. Why should private investors have to compromise on their returns?
In fact, the opposite could be true. Sustainable investing could make a positive impact on global problems and provide you with above average market returns.
But are all sustainable investments a sure win? Certainly not.
ESG-washing or greenwashing, where companies make misleading claims about their environmental and social practices, performances or products, could be an issue. Investors on the lookout for sustainable investments could be fooled by a product that is given a “green or ESG stamp”.
So, what should investors do? How can you identify the right ESG investments?
