According to a study by MSCI, companies in the MSCI World Index with strong ESG ratings consistently outperformed their counterparts with weaker ratings by a margin of over 3% per year over a decade-long period. As investors increasingly pressure companies to address climate change and demonstrate responsible leadership, there has been a significant increase in demand for ESG investments that align with investors' values and support sustainability. This trend has fueled explosive growth in the ESG investment sector, with assets dedicated to these principles expanding at a rate of 25% per year and projected to reach $33.9 trillion by 2026.
