This paper's goal and objective is to investigate the response of investment management businesses to sustainable investing through ESG integration. This report examines the level of ESG integration in major global market segments across geographies, industries, and sectors. In the established economy, ESG integration has provided favorable investment returns, however in the emerging market sector, this result is not statistically significant. On the one hand, it examines the role of global organizations in fostering sustainable investment awareness, and on the other, it considers the regulatory aspects of sustainable investment decision-making. To evaluate the sustainability of investment management, a thorough analysis of investment instruments and their ESG-integrated returns has been provided. To provide an all-encompassing view of the ESG integration approach, the perspective of ESG detractors has also been covered. We conclude that ESG Integration in Investment portfolio is a Thematic investment which generates positive returns in certain segments of the market, but the result is not conclusive as law across the globe.
