"Environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) are three areas that measure the ethical and sustainability performance of a company or investment. Drivers for firms pursuing ESG strategies can be ethical in nature, but for publically traded companies, are more commonly designed 1) to make their stock or products more attractive to ethically-minding customers, 2) to gain leverage in achieving social license to operate, or 3) because they see direct returns through efficiency gains or human resources/social contract routes. In short, ESG factors impact the ability of firms to generate profit."
