Thanks for this article, Mike!

Yeah... on the one hand, ESG allows for a lot more leeway in stocks that you can "screen in," if they have some strong initiatives in some of the areas, but yes, that also can allow in companies with some pretty big weaknesses/flaws. I think that the point that voting records are important is key... if they're voting to work to change/fix some of the flaws, that can go a long way. If not, that does look pretty bad.

It's a good reminder to look at what's being invested in and what these folks are actually doing versus what they are saying.
