As an ESG practitioner, you now have two choices:

You can double down on the (delusional) notion that ESG makes the world better (instead of the reality that it’s predatory delay, which Alex Steffen defines as “the blocking or slowing of needed change, in order to make money off unsustainable, unjust systems in the meantime” – I can hear you objecting as I write, but I encourage you to read this definition carefully and challenge yourself to leverage evidence to prove it wrong.)


You can embrace bona fide sustainability, which ensures its claims by gauging impacts vis-à-vis ecological ceiling and social foundation thresholds (sometimes visualized as a Doughnut, thanks to Kate Raworth’s 2012 reinterpretation of Barbara Ward’s 1974 conceptualization of social “inner limits” and ecological “outer limits” for the United Nations).
