InfluenceWatch’s ESG Hub

ESG activism refers to individuals and organizations that advocate for environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) criteria as part of evaluating business operations. ESG considerations can be employed as a basis for investment or divestment in a corporation or fund, and in activism targeting those corporations or funds. This political activism has led to growing criticism of the ESG movement, with critics arguing that the movement harms financial returns and that it coerces individuals who participate in pooled investments like mutual funds to support political positions against their will.
