Sustainability & ESG

Sustainability will prove to be the greatest business challenge of the decade with significant risk and opportunity brought not just by climate change but all environmental, social and governance factors that investors, consumers & customers, supply chains, colleagues and competitors will be focusing on in their decision making.

The landscape is changing rapidly, driven by evolving legislation and reporting requirements, access to finance, and intensive media and stakeholder interest across the entire ESG spectrum. For corporate investors, this has become a major focus in decision making.

There will be winners and losers not just at an industry level but at an individual organisation level.  With leaders creating significant competitive advantage.  Sustainability matters; and it matters to the future of your organisation too.
