SEC Officials clarify the Commission’s stance on ESG Investing and the role of disclosure.
ESG is more than Shannon Aero's belief in or the practice of disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others. Community and neighborhood are of importance to us. They can mean the same thing in different times, at separate occasions and different circumstances. Community is associated with “people living their lives in some common or shared way” (Peterman, 2000: 20). We may belong to communities not only of place but also of people sharing the same way of life. Community can then be created by daily contact with neighbors. Neighborhood is associated with specific geography. A variety of neighborhood make up the community we live in.
Why ESG is seen as part of the investment decision.
The UN "Climate Neutral Now" initiative.
It has evolved to become a much wider tool for awareness-raising, capacity building, partnership development, promoting and facilitating the estimation of carbon footprints, the reduction of those footprints, and voluntary compensation (offsetting).
The Climate Neutral Now Initiative encourages and supports organizations and other interested stakeholders to act now in order to achieve a climate neutral world by 2050 as enshrined in the Paris Agreement. The initiative is NOT a certification scheme for its participants. It is a tool to promote additional voluntary action on climate, and to provide recognition for it. Claims of carbon neutrality, net zero or similar are out of the scope of Climate Neutral Now, even when participation in the initiative can help stakeholders advance in their path to achieve those certifications through suitable standards and processes.
An organization can become a participant by signing the Climate Neutral Now Pledge, following the three steps (Measure, Reduce, Contribute) and reporting on its actions and achievements annually. ext and edit me.

Case Study: Aga Khan Organization.
The AKDN believes that an effective and functioning state apparatus is essential for any developing country. However, systems experience, and complex development agendas cannot be left only to the state. A nation’s growth requires private initiative. For these reasons, AKDN Civil Society Programme creates an enabling environment that is essential to building civil society.
AKND has been building schools, clinics and hospitals, establishing companies to provide essential goods and services, created early childhood programmes that give poor children a head start, act on climate change by planting millions of trees and building public parks, funding museums and hotels, all directed towards setting standards for environmental stewardship. AKND supports farmers’ associations that give them a voice in policy making. For more than forty years, AKND architectural awards have been effective in influencing architectural dialogue. AKND has funded universities and nursing schools that provide essential human resources for developing nations. Savings groups have been established to help the poorest of the poor weather financial hardship and build a better future.
The Aga Khan Rural Support Programmes (AKRSP) have employed grassroots democracy, civil society and pluralism as the springboard for a dramatic improvement in living conditions for people in remote mountain ranges, coastal regions and other poor areas.
Central to this transformation has been AKRSP’ development of citizen-led village organizations whose inclusive processes allow diverse communities to implement joint solutions to common problems. In the process they are helping more than 8 million people achieve greater food security, higher household incomes and increased opportunities. The Aga Khan University (AKU) was chartered in Pakistan three decades ago to help provide quality healthcare services, training and research in developing countries. Over 14,000 alumni have graduated from the AKU including doctors, nurses, teachers and school managers who are mandated to raise standards and play leading roles in their respective fields. Today campuses teaching sites stretch across three continents. New campuses in Karachi, Pakistan and Arusha, Tanzania will graduate people who will tackle issues crucial to the wellbeing of society: Architecture & Human Settlement, covering economic growth & development; government, public policy & civil society; law; media & communications.
