Why is the Environmental-Social-Governance (ESG) Score Important?

The ESG criteria cover a wide area, from the concrete steps taken by the companies to reduce their carbon footprint to the health and safety policies for their employees, from the management of supply chains to creating a corporate culture that is based on trust and supports innovation and social responsibility. With the ESG performance; how much the companies take these criteria into account in their corporate strategies, productions, investments and policies is determined. Fund providing financial institutions also consider the ESG scores of the relevant company during their investment research processes.
