So, what happened? How did ESG suddenly become so controversial – a call to arms for many just a few years ago, the world was rallying around environmental social and governance efforts in a way that was exciting and with hope.

This edition of the Socially Inspired Investor digest will look at this pivotal moment to understand how we can get past this roadblock; why it is a legitimate concern for some, and if ESG is flawed, what is the more practical term or approach?
