Ethics - the missing 'E' in ESG investing?
Investment that takes into account environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors has grown massively. For many people, this development offers the hope of more ethical business, better suited to meeting the environmental and other challenges that our world faces.

Annabel briefly presented her findings and then discussed their implications as part of the panel.
