 ESG investments have gained considerable traction and attention in recent years. In fact, ESG-related investments accounted for about one-quarter of all the money that flowed into U.S. stocks and bond mutual funds in 2020, a huge increase from ESG’s one percent share just 6 years earlier.1 Globally, sustainable investment now tops USD 30 trillion, up 68 percent since 2014 and tenfold since 2004.2

What’s apparent is that ESG is much more than a fad or a passing trend.

ESG, which is short for environmental, social and governance, can be traced all the way back to 2006, when former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan who encouraged major financial institutions to join the initiative to integrate ESG into capital markets within the framework of the UN Global Compact.3 But ESG is only becoming mainstream now, driven by united demand from a younger generation of employees, investors and customers.
