ESG & Sustainability Trends in C-Suite in 2021: The Winners, Losers, & Future Outlook
For decades, companies were able to avoid speaking on delicate current issues, like climate change, social inequality, or fair working conditions. Today, it’s far from optional; publicly-traded organizations must discuss and invest in ESG or risk incurring significant economic costs. We know most companies today are making serious ESG investments. But to what extent is the C-Suite really updating shareholders on sustainability topics?
