ESG is one of the fastest growing compliance issues in financial services regulation.
Last Autumn’s COP26 summit kept ESG - the acronym denoting commitment to environmental, social and governance - high on executives list of priorities. It is hoped that this focus could put us in a position to stave off the prospect of climate change catastrophe.
Whilst acknowledging that The Climate Policy Initiative have estimated that climate policy flows will need to increase by a minimum of 590% to meet international target emission reduction, Henning Stein, Global Head of Thought Leadership at Invesco, wrote recently for Green Biz that with mounting evidence of ESG’s value, it could be “…a vehicle for positive lasting change” and that it could also represent an “unprecedented growth opportunity”

Lintott expounds “It empowers teams managing risk, personnel and cost effectively,

Whilst acknowledging that since the focus on ESG has intensified and we have come a long way, Henning Stein admits we have much further still to go but that “positive lasting change over time is preferable to no change at all”.
