ESG Investments Do Not Protect You in Market Downturns

ESG = environmental, social and governance priorities. 

From the National Legal and Policy Center: 

"...that ESG factors did not inoculate investors against the stock market downturn that was attributed to the COVID crash of the global economy, nor did sustainability priorities aid in the subsequent limited recovery.
