The Future of ESG and the Green Deal
The criteria of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) are no longer just a trend – their importance and impact on companies is growing exponentially on a global level.
Reinforced by regulatory trends in the EU, key investors have started to embrace ESG and sustainable investing, moving ESG investing up on the agenda.
