Key takeaways

  • Companies need to take a broader perspective on ESG that incorporates 5 lenses: traditional; purpose linked to the corporate strategy; behavior and expectations of key stakeholders; investor and lender scrutiny; regulations and standards; and litigation.
  • ESG standards are changing fast.
  • The EU Taxonomy will feed into reporting requirements from both a financial and non-financial perspective to steer funds toward sustainability and drive the transition to a net-zero continent by 2050.
  • The finance function needs to invest in the right skills and talent in relation to ESG.
