Sustainability & ESG
Businesses across the world are inextricably linked with sustainability and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) concern. For the world to emerge stronger, businesses are required to play a crucial role in addressing ESG related issues. The key challenges that shape the business landscape include climate change, energy security, clean energy access, natural resource depletion, pollution and waste, irresponsible production and consumption patterns, lack of sustainable infrastructure, employee relations and corruption and bribery. The pandemic has also put the spotlight on social and governance elements especially health and safety. In addition, recent geopolitical conflicts have triggered shocks to the food and energy systems and disrupted commodity supply chains.
Navigating these challenges, managing the risks emanating from these challenges and maximising opportunities require both the public and private sector to proactively embed sustainability and ESG in their strategy to build resilient businesses. Companies are also under pressure from stakeholders like investors, customers and employees to redefine their ‘purpose’ and ‘improve social impact’ and meet regulatory requirements by taking ambitious actions. These would require an exceptional level of analysis, innovation, commitment and actions.
