The days of investors focusing solely on financial statements are long gone. If you want to attract retail investors, institutional investors or fund managers, you’ll need to meet ESG criteria. Society, investors, consumers and employees are expecting companies to grow in a financially sustainable, yet environmentally viable way. ESG isn’t just used by socially conscious investors to screen companies prior to investing, it’s also looked at by customers, consumers and employees when they’re making decisions about what companies to get behind. ESG is a global priority, so if ESG is not a priority for your business, ask yourself why.
