About ESG - Environmental, Social Governance Sector
ESG Investing is a strategy built on taking into account not only the financial success of an investment, but considering the environmental, social and governance factors of the companies in a portfolio. Within our ESG Sector at alphaDIRECT, we look for companies we believe are having a positive impact on the environment and the global community. Environmental criteria reviews a company’s core business and products as well as well as corporate practices regarding energy use, pollution and overall conservation of resources. Social factors consider the company’s broader business relationships as well as overall impact on the community. Governance factors include transparency, board independence and ethics.
