Considering Responsible Investing? Here's Why You Should

For many, 2020 was seen as a “critical year for addressing climate change.” Riding on a wave of environmental activism, the hope was that the 2020 UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), scheduled in November of last year, would solidify plans to reduce global carbon emissions. Instead, COVID-19 and anti-racism movements refocused public attention, overshadowing many pressing environmental concerns and postponing COP26. But while this period of upheaval seems to have sidelined the momentum that environmental concerns were gaining, the social inequalities revealed have pushed many conscious investors to explore sustainable investments — specifically those focused on companies with strong environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) principles.
