Acorns’ “ESG portfolios” are made of varying combinations of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), which invest in individual companies focused on their environmental, social, and governance business practices or their Morgan Stanley Corporate International (MSCI) ESG rating. 

MSCI ESG ratings are a comprehensive measure of a company's long-term commitment to socially responsible investments (SRI) and environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment standards. In particular, the MSCI ESG ratings focus on a company's exposure to financially relevant ESG risks.

Acorns has created four ESG portfolios to allow you to invest in companies that are making an impact in one or more of these areas.
