ESG - Environmental, Social and Governance Investing

It used to be called SRI - Socially Responsible Investing, but regardless of what you call it, the focus is on the future.

I've always felt that "Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle" was missing the fourth "R"...Renew.  In the same way, the ESG investing movement appears to be largely overlooking an important element, namely - Shareholder Activism.  Shareholder Activism goes beyond voting and takes an active role in attempting to influence the policies of the corporations they invest in.  Not all ESG investments are created equal and there are many to choose from so know what your ESG investments are doing for the future.
