ESG Comes of Age

For years corporate leaders have acknowledged that business should play a role in addressing urgent challenges like climate change and cybersecurity. But for all their good intentions, these executives have also recognized that environmental, social, and governance matters are a secondary concern for their biggest investors. Executives may want to manage for the long term, but they believe that the market demands they keep their eye on quarterly results.

That's changing. “The impression among business leaders is that ESG just hasn't gone mainstream in the investment community. That perception is outdated,” say Said Business School's Bob Eccles and the World Bank's Svetlana Klimenko. In “The Investor Revolution” (page 106), the two present the most persuasive evidence yet that institutional investors are making ESG a priority. In interviews with leaders of dozens of investment firms, the authors found that “ESG was almost universally top of mind” In fact, many had committed to systematically integrating ESG considerations into their investment decisions.
Shareholders, say Eccles and Klimenko, are now holding corporate leaders accountable for ESG performance. The authors warn that executives who don't consider the longterm impact of their actions on the world will be punished by the markets while those who do address it will be rewarded. And that is the surest way to close the gap between good intent and practice.
