ESG-focused business strategy isn’t just a feel-good concept anymore — it’s increasingly necessary to attract investment.

We were not surprised to watch how this community continues to adapt in the face of so much uncertainty.

To determine the value of a potential investment, firms have begun using a specific set of criteria designed to evaluate a company’s sustainability. That is to say, how well will the company hold up to environmental scrutiny? How strong are its relationships in its social ecosystem?
