Elon Musk Calls ESG Metrics a 'Scam'

Tesla CEO Elon Musk called ESG “an outrageous scam” after the electric vehicle maker lost its spot on an S&P Global index that tracks companies on their environmental, social and governance standards. 

Expressing his displeasure in a series of tweets, Musk said the index compiler had “lost their integrity” and said “political attacks” on him would “escalate dramatically in coming months.”
