Three short stories about ESG

By Nithin Sasikumar in BFO #375, 22 Sep, 21

ESG stands for environmental, social, and governance metrics. It’s a way to get companies to behave and pay attention to all stakeholders (customers, environment etc) rather than just the shareholders who’re in it for money. 

The premise of ESG is that what’s good for the world at large will be good for the companies as well. And companies will be able to maximise their profits by not being selfish.
