Corporate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance has become a key factor in the way many institutional investors allocate their money. Currently, more than US $ 3 tr of institutional money invested in equities is managed following strict ESG assessment standards. In addition, ESG investment policies have a broader influence on US $ 15 tr globally, nearly ½ of the total US $ 35 tr institutional money invested in equities worldwide.
Sustainable companies have understood that a compelling business case must integrate its impact on the environment and society, and how the business is governed, into their core strategy, business goals and communication strategy. The majority of them already publish a yearly sustainability assessment to update their stakeholders, adhering to the various standards: GRI, SASB, Integrated Reporting, the EU DIrective on Non-Financial Disclosure and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals reporting guidelines, which Leaders Arena fully supports.
Yet our research suggests that most companies engage with institutional investors on ESG without paying enough attention to the fundamentals of this communication process.
