How the Pandemic Has Elevated Sustainability and ESG
SOURCE: Antea GroupDESCRIPTION:
It was going so well.
Before the pandemic hit, many companies were starting to recognize the increased prioritization on ESG investments. Budgets were being allocated, initiatives were being planned, steps were being taken.
But when a global health disaster hits - priorities change fast.
Suddenly, limited resources are that much more limited. Business survivability is called into question - and long-term resilience strategies are truly tested. When it comes time for budget cuts, previous commitments can be reconsidered. Is ESG really important right now? The short answer: Absolutely. Ironically, it’s times like these where the value of ESG commitments become more apparent, as do the implications of misprioritization.
