Facebook, Visa among the stocks with high ESG marks — enough to outrun the S&P 500

Companies that improve their environmental, social and governance reputations outperform the S&P 500 — major technology and financial services firms among them.

That’s according to researchers at FactSet, who broke out the S&P 500 into deciles based on ESG improvement scores using Sustainaylitcs ratings and then compared the top decile (e.g. the companies that improved ESG scores the most) to the S&P 500 SPX, +0.54%   as a whole.
