Business leaders are under pressure from customers, investors, regulators, and other stakeholders to demonstrate that their organizations are acting responsibly and sustainably. In answer to this, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) have become widely accepted pillars along which organizations can structure their commitment to build positive and sustainable business practices.
In the ESG space, the role of technology and its presence has always been influential. This has cultivated a firm belief that technology can play a key role in ESG – from reducing carbon emissions to measuring ESG impacts and reporting. From developing and distributing life-saving vaccines, to throwing businesses a lifeline by helping them pivot to online operations, to tackling climate change, to bringing about greater social equality through the power of online learning, technology’s critical role in our world now and in the future has never been clearer.
In collaboration with the Malaysian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA), this thought leadership explores ways technologies such as big data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), metaverse and 5G connectivity can help organizations develop effective ESG strategies and supercharge progress in achieving ESG targets.
