Environmental criteria include considerations like the environmental impact of the company's products and services, as well as the company's efficiency in terms of its use of energy and resources. Social criteria include elements such as human rights, child labor, corporate diversity, and the company's impact on society for instance, taken into consideration would be business activities tied to weapons, gambling, tobacco, and alcohol.
