Organisations and individuals face increasing pressure from investors, regulators, and society for strong and transparent action on:
• Addressing climate change and reducing emissions;
• Maintaining social licence;
• Demonstrating high standards of governance;
1 in 3 investors (33%) already select their investments based on ESG factors (Investment Trend’s 2021), and 8 in 10 Australians already invest or plan to invest in ESG options in the future.
Australia is well on its way toward regulations mandating ESG performance be strictly measured and assessed. However, to maintain social license, organisations must be proactive when communicating their ESG strategy and impact.
