The Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) Score is an indicator of how concerned a company is about its effects on the three aforementioned categories. This is an initiative started by the United Nations and has its origins in the Sullivan Principles. The Sullivan Principles were a code of conduct laid out by Leon Sullivan, an anti-apartheid activist, for companies to use to apply pressure to South Africa in opposition of the apartheid. The use of the ESG Score is very popular among massive companies and it's only growing.
