An increasingly important topic in business and investing is a company’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) score. An example of an ESG activity is zero net carbon emissions by using renewable energy – for instance, Apple (AAPL) has a target of being “carbon neutral” by 2030 by using renewable energy sources like wind and solar.
The general methodology of how an ESG score is calculated is given in the Thomson Reuters article below:

Using a similar methodology, the Dow Jones list of top ESG scores is shown in the list below:

In what some call a “green rush”, many investment firms have created ESG funds to give investors the choice to invest in stocks with high ESG scores. But a concern is so-called “greenwashing”, where firms pretend to be more ESG than they truly are, because consumers are willing to pay more for products that they believe are “green”:

But not everyone supports the concept of ESG investing, arguing that ESG is politics rather than good investing. For example, some states in the US, such as Florida and Texas and West Virginia, have banned ESG investing in their state pension funds:

A response in support of ESG is given below by the CEO of the BlackRock investment fund, the largest investment firm for ESG funds:

A survey of university students at the University of Houston, focusing on companies in the energy sector, shows that concern about ESG varies among students – some students think that ESG is important, some not.

The vast majority of UH students (96%) believe that climate change is happening, and a majority of respondents (57%) said that climate change is caused by both human and natural changes in the environment.
The survey also showed that ESG stewardship is a factor for some students when considering job offers in the energy industry (i.e., oil and gas sector).
Question:  Do you think that companies have a responsibility to proactively pursue ESG goals, or should companies focus on making money for shareholders?

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
