Sustainability and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) are still evolving concepts, but they are rooted in the simple belief that companies and investors can achieve enhanced financial returns while contributing a positive impact on the world around them. 

In an age of unstable globalization, rising geopolitical tensions, competing trade blocs and energy insecurity, businesses and managers will face even greater sustainability and ethical investing challenges as they acquire customers or partners, diversify their suppliers, manage human capital and invest across markets. 

Navigating these pitfalls and opportunities is fast becoming a necessary part of every practitioner’s business, investment and risk toolkit. And the level of data, resources and tools available continues to grow, which you can track here at Global Zero.

What does that mean for you?
