The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing trends. The rapid growth rate of ESG assets is expected to continue in the coming years. Corporate leaders face scrutiny from investors, creating the case for better integration of ESG practices throughout the business.
PwC Malaysia, in collaboration with The Malaysian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA), recently conducted a survey to explore the sentiments of investors on ESG investing. The resulting publication ‘Embracing the ESG revolution: Zeroing in on investor expectations’, sheds light on investor priorities and underlines what organisations need to do to enable long term value creation. Balancing between investor expectations and performance can be challenging, increasing the need for quality and reliability in ESG reporting. The publication shares why upholding the ESG agenda is a collaborative effort between investors and businesses, and highlights the need for all parties to play their part in shaping a more sustainable future together.
