Organizations today need to navigate an increasingly complex environment at the intersection of sustainability, geopolitics, policy and finance. At the same time, they face unprecedented pressure from investors and other stakeholders to address environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

In this climate, professionals are grappling with how to:

  • understand the macro sustainability trends and their underlying drivers;
  • assess the relevant geopolitical dynamics at play;
  • anticipate emerging sustainability issues on the horizon;
  • keep abreast of ESG standards and framework developments; and
  • prepare for stricter disclosure requirements.

The ESG Monitor Report Series helps you proactively identify, assess and track ESG developments that will most impact your strategies, operations, people and investments. The Monitor provides a monthly comprehensive report on the latest trends and issues in the global ESG landscape.
