Investment Hour: ESG's dirty secret

For the vast majority of investors, the stock market remains primarily a place for making money work harder. But increasingly, environmental and social consciousness is playing a role in investment decisions.


But a lack of clear guidelines on ESG reporting means there has been a rise in both companies and funds attempting to make themselves seem cleaner than they are - and life harder for investors that want to make their money genuinely work for good.  


On this week's Investment Hour John Hughman and Megan Boxall discuss these sticky issues with associate editor Algy Hall, with some help from Ronald Cohen, famed venture capitalist, Peter Toogood, chief investment officer at retirement solutions provider Embark Group and Tom McGillycuddy, co-founder of impact investment app, Tickr.
