Sustainability used to be just about saving the planet. Today it has morphed into an umbrella term for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues. Citizens, governments, regulators, and the media are turning the spotlight on corporations and demanding action. Social inequality, corruption, tax avoidance, and a lack of action on climate change are all issues that companies must now address head-on, in full public view.

ESG is the number one theme facing most companies today. Over the next couple of years, its importance will only grow. Companies that embrace all three elements of ESG will outperform their peers. CEOs that are too slow to improve their company's approach to ESG will see an exodus of customers and a drop in profits far sooner than they ever imagined.

The reluctance of many CEOs to fully engage with ESG can be attributed to the age-old view that it will hurt profits. However, our research suggests the opposite.
