Is Exergonic positive or negative?

Is Exergonic positive or negative?

A chemical reaction progresses only spontaneously when the Gibbs free energy decreases, in that case the ΔG is negative. In exergonic reactions the ΔG is negative and in endergonic reactions the ΔG is positive: exergon. endergon.
