How will ESG Evolve After COVID-19?
ESE expects to see a shift in Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) future developments moving forward from the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, investors are providing ESG assessments for each company they cover and aligning corporate engagement priorities to governmental sustainability goals. These actions could soon turn ESG reports to focus more on risk assessment and disclosure. This would include corporate cultural wellness, supply chain management and climate change risk scenarios. Companies might address cybersecurity, working arrangements and business continuity/emergency plans could be warranted. Regardless of the changes, ESE Partners will adapt to the ESG and COVID-19 response to responsibly move business forward through environmental problem solving.
