Sustainability or ESG?
What is the difference between ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) and Sustainability?
ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) and sustainability are related concepts, but they have different focuses:
(Environmental, Social, and Governance)
ESG focuses on evaluating a company's or investment's sustainability and ethical impact based on three key factors:
environmental, social, and governance.
It is a framework that provides investors with a way to assess the sustainability and ethical impact of companies or investments, and to make more informed decisions about where to invest their money.
Sustainability, on the other hand, is a broader concept that refers to the ability of human societies and the natural environment to coexist in a way that is socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable over the long term.
It encompasses a wide range of issues, including climate change, biodiversity, resource depletion, social equity, and economic development.
In other words
ESG is a tool for assessing the sustainability and ethical impact of individual companies or investments, while sustainability is a broader goal that encompasses a wide range of social, economic, and environmental issues.
ESG is one way to promote sustainability, but it is only one part of a larger effort to create a more sustainable world.
