While the COVID-19 pandemic presents a huge challenge to the world, it exemplifies the interdependent relationship a company has with the community it serves, and the prominent role environmental, societal and governance (ESG) factors have in contributing to the resilience of a business.

In our latest edition of Frontiers in Finance, we explore the rapidly growing ESG agenda in the financial services sector by looking at the opportunities and growth areas, the global efforts in transitioning to an ESG-aware financial system; the increasing demand for common measurement and disclosure; and the evolving political and regulatory landscape related to ESG. 

We also spoke to industry leaders to find out how they are turning the ESG agenda to their advantage, and provide real-world examples to demonstrate how financial services firms can drive positive results by embedding ESG into their strategy and operations.
