Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance is becoming a front and center issue for corporations around the world, with impacts throughout organizations. Corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability departments especially are facing new challenges related to ESG, as they may be required to take on much of the added work due to their ESG-related mandates.
What changes have you noticed in your work? Have you or your department taken on more ESG-related tasks? What new challenges are you facing? What are your peers in the space doing?
This year we launched our State of ESG Survey 2022 to learn from you. Your responses will help CSR and sustainability professionals understand how their roles are changing to meet new demands, the common challenges they’re facing, and how organizations approach ESG globally. Aside from helping to shape the dialogue on the state of ESG within CSR, respondents will get early access to exclusive survey content.
The survey is now closed. If you want to make sure you receive the final report, click here to subscribe to our ESG newsletter.
