Newsletter: ESG: what, why, long-term-thinking, making a profit

What is ESG? Why is ESG important? Can a company that adopts ESG also maximise profits? What are the challenges in adopting ESG? Why is demand for ESG growing? What is the ESG opportunity and how does this tie in with labour shortage? And what about ESG and company culture?
