The ESG Handbook 2020: Spurring the green recovery  - edie.net

Green finance and ESG investing were reaching a tipping point, then the coronavirus pandemic swept across the world. The virus hasn’t so much as tipped the scales towards ESG investing but rather poured most of the world’s financial system towards it.

ESG, or Environmental, Social and Governance, is investor speak for what sustainable business has been doing for years. While 2019 was a record year for green finance, the wildfires of early 2020 and subsequent Covid-19 pandemic have accelerated the focus that the finance community is placing on reducing risk against environmental and societal factors.

If businesses want to assist with national and global efforts to build back better, aligning to ESG reporting requirements is one way to ensure the finance is funnelled into a global
green recovery.

This report, sponsored by UL and created in association with edie’s Sustainable Investment
Virtual Conference, will explain the complexities of ESG and outline best practice applications for businesses.

The report examines all the key considerations across all three ESG pillars and explores where the data fits into the current reporting landscape. Expert viewpoints are also provided by UL and CDP, outlining the importance of ESG to the investor community. Case studies linking through to in-depth stories also feature.
