In the wake of the economic volatility created by the pandemic, it has underscored the importance of responsible, resilient and sustainable business models and, related, the Sustainable Development Goals. It is clear that environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are material factors that businesses and investors alike must address in order to rebuild resilience. Healthy societies and healthy markets go hand-in-hand—this adage has never been more apparent.
