Compelling Investor Engagement on ESG
The number of institutional investors who now include environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in investment decisions is growing fast. Globally, 70% of institutions are integrating sustainable investing into their investment process*, mainly aiming to lower risk and grow returns. Companies are facing questions about ESG issues alongside questions about financials. Few companies are equipped to handle these questions. But a strong engagement strategy on ESG questions could grow your potential investor pool and achieve value recognition for your company. How do you turn the surging interest in ESG into a competitive advantage?
