When we give our dollars to companies as investors, we know very little about how those dollars affect the world around us and the future in terms of social impact. Brokerages should disclose these ratings on all the stocks in the stock market.

More specifically, they should use the MSCI ESG rating (environmental, social, and governance). It focuses on environmental friendliness, human relationships, and leadership (sustainability). Many investors want to support companies that have a positive impact on our future. 

ESG ratings allow us to better understand which companies prioritize things like using sustainable resources or reducing their effects on climate change. ESG ratings also help us determine which companies treat their employees, suppliers, and other staff well. This can include hiring a diverse workforce, humane guidelines, and philanthropic practices. 

Doing this not only allows the ordinary investor to be socially responsible with their money, but also makes for better long term investors because it gives us a reason of why we put our money where we put it in the first place - to create a better brighter future while building our wealth sustainably.
