Excerpt: "ESG [environmental, social, and governance factors] is becoming part of investors’ understanding of risks and opportunities for business, and the regular way in which they analyze companies. That continues regardless of what’s happening in the markets. Something like 50% of growth in the CPG [consumer packaged goods] sector comes from sustainability marketed products. This is not a short-term thing; it’s an ongoing shift in consumer behavior, business behavior, investor behavior."
