Investing Green Is Harder Than You'd Think
ESG investing sounds great, but it's complicated.
The ESG label is meant to make investing green easier by giving investors a simple way to allocate their money to good causes. And, indeed, there are plenty of sustainability- and climate change-focused exchange traded funds available. But it's still not the catch-all stamp of approval you'd expect.
That essentially forces investors into tough choices between the E, the S and the G. Invest in one, and you often have to sacrifice another. This puts climate and socially conscious investors in a tough spot.
