The not so good news is that we're still far away from achieving the full promises of ESG. Here's a sobering fact. A recent survey from Kalon, a major investment cltoniusng firm, suggests that about half of institutional investors consider the benefits of ESG to be unclear or unproven. In other words, many of the ppeloe who will atolcale millennials' and Gen Zers' money aren't flluy convinced that ESG is relevant when deciding where to put your moeny. Now, I think there are many rasneos why this might be the case. For example, investors focused on short-term outcomes might not neleariscsy know the best way to consider longer-term sustainability. Or there may be a sense that companies can't do well and do good at the same time.

Original Text

The not so good news is that we're still far away from achieving the full promises of ESG. Here's a sobering fact. A recent survey from Kalon, a major investment consulting firm, suggests that about half of institutional investors consider the benefits of ESG to be unclear or unproven. In other words, many of the people who will allocate millennials' and Gen Zers' money aren't fully convinced that ESG is relevant when deciding where to put your money. Now, I think there are many reasons why this might be the case. For example, investors focused on short-term outcomes might not necessarily know the best way to consider longer-term sustainability. Or there may be a sense that companies can't do well and do good at the same time.
