ESG is no longer enjoying its honeymoon. ESG strategies – whatever that means – have underperformed in 2022 and ESG investment is coming under increasing criticism from politicians, regulators, investors and even practitioners. Some of this criticism is valid but at the heart of the problem is uncertainty arising from the widespread use of an acronym with no – or rather many - common meanings. It is right to question ESG practices, but they have merit and will continue to be increasingly important to investors and by extension, the investments and wealth industry. The real problem is the ill-defined use of the acronym itself and we will all be better off if we stop using it.

In achieving longer term objectives, climate change demands both a defensive strategy to mitigate longer term risks and an offensive, tactical, approach to capitalising on opportunities.
