"Companies that perform better on ESG criteria tend to do better financially in the long term."

Julie Fox Gorte on Green Connections Radio

How we spend our money is powerful. Consumer dollars, advertiser dollars, and investment dollars all make a statement about our values and what we want to see more of in the world.

Listen to Dr. Julie Fox Gorte of PaxWorld Investments, a renowned expert on socially-responsible investing talk with Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson about how to match your investment dollars with your values for financial benefit.

You'll hear:

  • What ESG investing is – Using Environment, Social, Governance criteria.
  • How companies that make ESG a priority perform better in the long term.
  • Why diverse teams make better decisions.
  • Tips for how to evaluate your financial advisor and companies' social responsibility reports.
  • Why divesting of fossil fuels is not the answer
  • Students taking a stand on investing too.

"Diverse groups do a better job of decision making. They will consider more data sources, consider them more fairly and monitor the outcomes more assiduously than homogeneous groups."
