Birthed in January 2004 by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, ESG – environmental, social, and governance – is a prevalent investment factor analysts use to gauge companies’ impact on the community. In January 2020, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink brought ESG to the global stage, making a positive rating a requirement for high profits and sustained investing by various firms.

Fink kept his promise. Already, BlackRock has put 191 companies on watch, shut down 69 companies, and removed 64 directors. More importantly, Fink has requested that all companies adopt a strategy to eliminate net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Today, total global assets pertaining to ESG have almost doubled, with more than $4 out of every $10 invested into ESG. In fact, nearly one-third of all professionally managed US assets comprise sustainable strategies.

As companies begin caring more about their ESG footprint, the financial sector and the world have seen positive returns. Since Mr. Fink’s ESG policy inauguration, 225+ companies now expect over $2.1T in possible revenue opportunities by 2023. Had it not been for Mr. Fink, according to a Computer Climate Model, the world’s financial sector could lose anywhere between $1.7T to $24.2 T.
