In making sustainable investment decisions, a rational imperative is to comprehend the integration of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into investment mechanisms and decisionmaking. The elements of ESG, which include, inter alia, the response of corporations to factors like climate change, corporate social responsibility initiatives, employee rights (including LGBTQIA+ rights), health and safety protocols, and fostering a corporate culture for building trust and innovation, encompass a plethora of issues which, though not forming part of traditional financial analyses, still hold economic relevance. ESG, with its quantifiable metrics, is an impact driven process aiding investors in taking informed decisions, cognizant of the impact their investments have in the larger environmental and socio-cultural context.
