Many companies have acknowledged climate change, resource conservation, and social justice as important issues for years, but companies limited their involvement in them to philanthropy—or at best a PR campaign—not integrating ESG concerns as part of their core business.

Today, ESG is a critical issue, impacting a company’s growth, bottom line, and ability to attract and retain talent.

  • 86% of global consumers expect CEOs to lead on societal issues.
  • 58% of employees consider a company’s social and environmental commitments when deciding where to work.
  • 64% of millennials won’t take a job from a company that doesn’t have strong sustainability practices.
  • Employees are 3 times more likely to stay and 1.4 times more engaged at what they consider to be purpose-driven organizations.

The deluge of statistics that confirm sustainability’s importance, coupled with a confluence of recent events, has driven ESG over the tipping point. Taken singly, each of these events was a storm; together, they are a tsunami.
