ESG is becoming a main priority on the board agenda and is increasingly seen as imperative to long-term value creation for organisations.

Regulation is coming, if you are still not convinced, governments and regulators are going to force businesses to take notice via the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (“TFCD”).
