ESG Investing : Profits Over Social Goals?

Despite rising popularity, are ESG investments really delivering the positive impact it’s supposed to? According to the Harvard Business Review, this is not always the case. The funds contained within these investments are not the same as capital that’s needed to effect change within the ESG space as they are focused on financial returns. We speak to Dr Renard Siew, Sustainability and Climate Change expert to get his thoughts on this.
