The history of ESG can be traced back to 2004. At that time, former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan invited 50+ CEOs of major financial institutions to develop recommendations on how to integrate ESG elements into capital markets. Everyone involved benefited from the move toward ESG, due to its ability to uncover value in areas where analytical methods fall short.

An ESG Global Survey found that asset owners allocated 48% of their funds towards ESG in 2017. This number grew to 75% in 2019, and these numbers are projected to grow to 92% by the end of 2021. This proves that there is a ton of value in ESG investments, both from a socially conscious standpoint as well as a financial perspective.
