ESG INVESTOR COLLABORATION RADAR
Latest trends, stats and effective strategies for companies to address ESG investor collaboration
As global assets integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations continue to swell, institutional investors globally are increasingly building coalitions and engaging with their portfolio companies to improve transparency and enact change on a broad range of ESG and sustainability-related issues. “ESG Communications Specialists” (typically working within Investor Relations, Corporate Communications or Sustainability teams) should act now to stay on top of the rapidly changing developments in this area and more effectively control their companies’ ESG messaging.
In recent years, both the number of collaboration initiatives and engagement topics have grown significantly in tandem with the tremendous growth in ESG investing. Of the 20 most impactful investor coalitions each representing more than US$1 trillion in collective assets, nearly half (nine) were formed since 2017, and 19 of 20 were launched since 2011.
Many companies find it challenging to keep up with the diverse and evolving approaches to ESG integration within their investor base, especially if the company operates in an industry where ESG issues have been identified as more material and relevant, such as oil & gas, manufacturing, financials, utilities and materials.
Our ESG Investor Collaboration Radar tracks all these initiatives and allows companies to engage with these investors more effectively. Our latest study summarises the latest trends, stats and the top 10 communication strategies that companies should follow to address ESG investor collaboration.
