Why is ESG important today?
In recent years, one of the most common developments in the global financial markets has been the adoption of sustainable investment decisions. Now, more than ever, investors are expecting businesses to make sustainable decisions that are focused on long-term profitability rather than short-term solutions which might create future financial difficulties or even create barriers to the company’s success journey.
Sustainable investing requires businesses to create, develop and integrate methodologies that will allow them to achieve Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) development goals. This means that in every decision they make, they need to consider potential effects on stakeholders, including employees, investors, customers, and the environment, and take into account all possible social impacts. In 2022, being a sustainable company is not an option but rather an essential element of a successful company. The importance of Sustainability and ESG is also proven by the adoption of this concept into the EU’s 2030 strategy.
Another must factor which makes the adoption of sustainability imperative is millennials. This generation is taking over executive positions across businesses and places sustainability at the top of their priorities and requirements when they are looking for an investment option. It has been observed that millennials are more likely to invest in a business with purpose and clear ESG objectives.
