What Exactly Is Sustainable Finance?
While the United Nations and European Commission agendas are primarily focused on environmental sustainability, ESG investing is at the forefront for advancing sustainable finance objectives and provides a foundation and standards for ESG analysis and equity valuation.
European Commission’s video about Sustainable Finance:
Is Sustainable Finance the same as ESG?
Think of sustainable finance as an umbrella that covers ESG investing, but also covers financial decisions driving greater sustainability in general. Sustainable finance goes beyond ESG considerations to include anything organizations are doing to improve their social responsibility performance, such as community involvement or supply chain support and development for example.
