ESG – A Major Theme Impacting the Tech, Media, & Telecom Industry in 2022 | GlobalData Plc

ESG will be the key theme discussed in corporate boardrooms in 2022 and beyond

LONDON, June 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — COP26 stressed that both private and public finance is required to fund technology for a low-carbon economy. Every financial decision must take the climate into account. Central banks and regulators must ensure that our financial systems can withstand the impacts of climate change, and ESG will be factored into all investment decisions. As of 2021, SFDR (Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation) is required by all financial market participants that operate within the EU. ESG reporting will become an expectation in 2022, and the creation of the International Sustainability Standards Board will add clarity to the otherwise confusing world of ESG disclosure. Those failing to disclose their ESG performance will face backlash from shareholders who will increasingly demand that companies align with ESG standards.
