Among many astounding developments pertaining to ESG/Sustainability in the past year, the ISS launch of its Environmental & Social Quality Score appears to have captured the attention of most remaining corporate boards on the fence about proactive attention to their company’s sustainability stance and strategy.
Corporate board directors and executive leadership should anticipate robust stakeholder attention to ESG/Sustainability developments throughout 2019. It may be time to muster company resources to get on-board with the trend.
The mainstream ESG/Sustainability train is going high speed in 2019
It is poignant that the nearly 50-year-old National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI) professional association just formally announced its first-ever ESG-disclosure policy statement on January 30, 2019. In the statement, the NIRI Board effectively acknowledges that ESG/Sustainability is here to stay and encourages IR professionals to become knowledgeable and proactive to address growing investor and stakeholder interest.
Now that both company boards and investor relations are being encouraged by two top influencers in their professional worlds to get on board with ESG/Sustainability, 2019 will likely be another year with astounding advances in ESG/Sustainability communications developments.
