Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) is here to stay. However, at the moment there is no common definition of what makes a ‘sustainable’ company or what constitutes good ESG practice. This means that the manner in which ESG is explained and classified lacks clarity, which causes problems when measuring and reporting ESG.

We also look at new types and sources of data that are emerging in the real economy and consider how the financial services industry can integrate them into products and services.
